Book Description Ralston Publishing Company, Inc., Aiea, HI, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. **SIGNED COPY** Fine First Edition/1st Printing (Stated) in Fine, price-intact ($89.95) dustjacket. Very minimal wear to jacket. The book and jacket have only two minor flaw worth mention: two tiny pin-point size perforations to the rear panel of the dustjacket, with corresponding marking to joint of rear board approximately 4.5" from the foot of the spine, and a minor closed tear to the joint, at the bottom of dustjacket's rear panel. These minimal issues do not detract in the least from the volume's desirability and eminently collectible character. From the Lillian Gottschalk Estate comes this outstanding Signed copy of Rick Ralston's definitive illustrated study of Cast Iron Floor Trains from 1880 to the onset of the Great Depression. This massive 324-page labor of love and scholarship took the author more than a full decade to complete, and it undoubtedly constitutes the most important, scholarly work on American cast-iron toy trains in existence. "Cast Iron Floor Trains" is a collector guide of the highest quality. A beautiful book, remarkably detailed, extensively researched and profusely illustrated in black & white and gorgeous color; the book includes a comprehensive history of the genre AND a detailed price and rarity guide. An amazing association copy as well, this copy is signed to the reverse of the first free endpage by the author, with a full-page inscription to the late Lillian B. "Lily" Gottschalk, 20th century America's pre-eminent toy expert and collector, unparalleled authority on cast iron toy vehicles, and contributor of this volume's preface. Also included is a signed photographic Christmas from the period surrounding the book's release. The original order form used by Mrs. Gottschalk to place her order for this, her personal copy of the book, will also accompany your purchase, to complete this volume's remarkable provenance. Due to the prodigious size and weight of this volume, extra postage charges may be required for shipment to some destinations. If this is a potential issue, please request a quote on shipping charges prior to making your purchase. Ships FAST!! and securely (insured and in a well-padded box) from Southern California. Inscribed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # ABE622B14
