About this Item

A one-of-a-kind insight into the daily workings of a 19th century railway company. A collection of over 250 memos; most on letterhead, and most by James M. Boon. Boon ended his nearly 50-year career at the NYWS&BR. He was a highly respected mechanic and one of the "most prominent of the early members of the [American Railroad] Master Mechanics Association." (William Forsyth, 38th Annual Convention, 1905.) These memos cover a wide range of mechanical & technical issues including defective parts, new products, repairs needed, and various regulations. Typed copies, most signed. These are tipped in to a letterheaded register of "Memorandum record of freight bills" (daily freight register.) Most of these pages are filled in, but you would need to first remove all 267 memos (attached at corners. in order to read it!) Disbound, all text is legible (except some chips on 3 memos laid in.) The memos themselves are Very Good. Front board missing, etc. Bookseller Inventory # mon0000028041
