Descripción

This is a custom bound volume -- which includes a rare Civil War-related map -- of 12 issues of a monthly magazine for passengers published by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Designed as a promotional publication, the magazine includes feature articles and original photographs about the railroad and its history, ads about B&O routes and services and special features on destinations and events serviced by the railroad. This volume contains a rare Civl War-related map. The map was produced for the July 1899 issue as part of a detailed feature article on Civil War battles fought on or near B&O tracks. The map is a fold-out, colored, 16" by 9" map that shows the dozens of locations where Civil War battles and B&O activities intersected. The map was printed by Butterfield of Chicago and included the Baltimore and Ohio logo. In general, each issue is about 30 pages and the collection is a treasure trove of information and vintage photographs related to the B&O. Interesting features include articles on: the "heaviest train" ever hauled on the B&O, Royal Blue observation cars, the latest engines and rolling stock, and an illustrated articles on the railway celebration of 1957. There is also an additional 66-page section "What the Clipping Agent Found about the New B&O 1829-1899" which is a collection of nation-wide news reports about the B&O including reporting on the company's change in ownership structure. There is also a complete listing of company officers. The binding is royal blue cloth with the company logo and titles in gilts on the front cover. N° de ref. de la librería 003939
