"The vehicles pictured in this book are miniatures made at one-eighth scale." all "part of his collection representing typical horse-drawn vehicles of the nineteenth century in America. The author sought out surviving vehicles, brought together scattered parts, established details by consulting manufacurers' specifications and plans, to the end that his miniatures should be faithrul to origins which once traversed the roads and trails, the snowy forests and muddy or dusty plains, the graveled drives and cobbled streets of the past (nineteenth) century." Divided into four parts: 1) Long Distance Transportatiion; Short Journeys and Social Uses; Serving The Growing Nation; and Photographing The Miniatures and How They Are Made. Mild foxing to endpapers. Color photos at the beginning of each section. Numerous black and white photos. Minor discoloring to one color plate. Inscribed by author to a Dr. Falcolner (possibly D.D. Falcolner, known as an authority in academic circles on vehicular technology). Bookseller Inventory #
