RARE. An exceedingly beautiful and small brochure handsomely produced to announce the new sleeping car system for the Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic Railway, which was inaugurated June 1, 1902. Brown paper cover, string-bound, with a nice tipped-on "label" on the cover featuring the train and the words "The North Country Mail" attractively framed. Back side has a sticker that looks like a wax seal, embossed with the words "The Marquette Route."16 pages with photographs of the train (interior as well) and text that extols the virtues of this means of travel. One page gives the time table, and in the back is tipped in a small foldout bird's-eye view map of the Marquette Route. The map is 13.5 by 6 inches, and the closed brochure is 4 1/8 by 6 1/4 inches. A very nice item, exceedingly scarce, seems there are no copies to locate on OCLC. Bookseller Inventory #
