About this Item

160 p. Includes: illustrations, index. Peach cloth over boards. Gold stamped titles. Photo and map illustrated jacket. Multiple B&W photos. 7.25x10.25in. RARE: In 1908, an international automobile race was run from New York's Times Square westward tol Paris, France. Jacket shows the general route across continents. George Schuster was the last living member of the winning crew, serving as mechanic and a driver. Their auto was the "Thomas Flyer", an American entry. The French entered 3 autos, and Italy, Germany, and the U.S. each had one. Only 3 would reach Paris. The retelling makes extensive use of archival B&W photos. This volume was dedicated to William Harrah, who restored the Thomas Flyer and put it on display at the Harrah Museum in Reno NV. Good in good dust jacket. Ex-library. Soil smudge, p.19, not into text. Wear from popular use, binding wiggle. Chips, short tears to jacket, some repaired. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.D1220005245

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
