About this Item

The Dawn of World Railways by O S Nock. Published by Macmillan Co, New York, NY, 1972. 1st American Edition. Hardbound, Paper DJ. Size 8vo. Condition: Nr Fine in Good DJ. 179 Pgs. LCCN 71-188767. Illustrated by Clifford and Wendy Meadway. Fourth volume in Railways of the World in Color series. In this book the author mentions some of the earliest forms of wagon-what, that were initially introduced to enable horses to pull heavier loads than was possible on the poor road surfaces of the period. He describes also the different types of track that evolved and the first locomotives, going on to trace the story through the transitional period when die-hard interests in England still clung to the use of the horse traction. Then the railway age is reached in earnest, with its quaint inspiring engineering works and its superb architecture. The color plates give a vivid picture of the railway scene in these exciting years. Description text copyright 2012 BooksForComfort. Item ID 26093. Bookseller Inventory # 26093
