Book Description ReInk Books, 2015. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Reprinted from 1921 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes than this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This hardback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of hardback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal hardbacks. This book is printed on demand on acid-free paper.(Original publisher, F. Shay) 67 pages. Bookseller Inventory # HB451056369

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from An Engineer s Note Book: Essays on Life and Letters That evening, early in November, as the car climbed the last ridges hiding the lake, the conversation had been concerned mainly with walking and the possibility of popularizing an apparently obsolete pastime in a country containing so many automobiles. At one time, I remarked, I was fond of saying that walking tours were impossible in the United States because there weren t, in any universal sense, roads to walk on. I had been told that in many sections the railroad ties were the only means of footing it to the next town. However, that doesn t hold good if a flivver can go clear across to Seattle, Washington. And these Jersey roads we have come over are quite all right. Some one muttered that once you got off the pike you never knew what sort of horrible fate was in store for you. True anywhere. I argued. That s one of the fine reasons for quitting the pike. You cease to be merely one of a continuous stream of automobiles all trying to tear past each other and dwelling forever in one another s dust. But does anybody walk nowadays? asked another member of the party as yet unspoiled by foreign travel. Indeed they do. was the immediate reply.
