About this Item

The book is bound in maroon cloth-covered boards with white title and illustration of a horse drawn fire engine on the front. The only defects to note on the book are tape marks left on the inside covers and end pages where the previous owner had taped the DJ to the book. This is a Limited Edition of 500 copies - a reprint of the 1896 edition. The DJ has minor chipping along top edges. The book has numerous black and white illustrations. The book is full of dimensions, specifications and performance records of the steam fire engines of about forty-eight builders. A wonderful history of early fire fighting equipment.
