The Hub's Vocabulary of Vehicles
Houghton, W.W.

Houghton, W.W. The Hub's Vocabulary of Vehicles. Undated facsimile reprint of the 1890s original [ca. 1970s?]. 55p, several line ills. (chiefly in the ads for various horse goods). Very good hardcover, no d.j. (as issued?). Laid in is the reprint publisher's note drawing attention to the fact that ca. 12 pages were printed illegibly. He has supplied gummed replacement pages, which can be mounted over the illegible pages. You will then have "a completely readable book." ** Alphabetical descriptions of all manner of carriages and other horse-drawn vehicles that were in use in the mid-1890s. Includes measurements of carriage tracks in the U.S. and many foreign countries. First published in New York by the Trade News Publishing Company. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 14559)
