Choo-Choo Panorama. Ten Feet Long

Choo-Choo Panorama. Ten Feet Long

First edition. Oblong 8vo. Light wear to the corners and extremities, else very good copy in illustrated paper over boards with orange cloth spines connecting each section. This is Platt & Munk book No. 891 and measures 8.5" x 10". Twelve double-sided, illustrated leaves, all connected in such a manner as to allow for one continuous picture of a 10 foot train when fully opened accordion-style. Hardbound in illustrated, paper-covered boards, with a cloth spine. As the book is opened, it shows the station, locomotive, tender, boxcar, passenger cars, a tank car, circus car, poultry car and livestock car, each filled with its respective cargo. These are variously identified as UPRR, Ill.Cent.RR, Penn.RR, SFRR, B&ORR, and NYCRR. The same scene is seen from either side. There is no text. Surprisingly nice, serviceable condition.
