New York: McGraw-Hill, 1918. First Edition. Octavo. Item #028070

Half-title, 105 pages, index. While many assume the laying of track was a simple matter, it was often delayed by poor engineering and the lack of trained trackmen. The Book of Rules in the back is one of the most carefully written guides to railroad engineers. The questions of durability as well as the major issue of water's corrosive aspect are dealt with, with many charts and basic math needed to be an effective designer of mine tracks. Bound in black cloth, spine lettering gilt, previous owner's name, near fine.
