[Quebec or Maine. circa 1886]. 13,pp., plus 21 3/4 x 16 1/4 inch folding map. With a 7 x 4 1/4 inch albumen photograph, on a slightly larger printed mount, laid in. Original printed wrappers. Fine. A scarce promotional pamphlet in favor of the construction of the Quebec & Wiscasset Railroad, enhanced by an attractive map, and the addition of a photograph of Wiscasset Harbor. The railroad was planned to run from Wiscasset, Maine, to the U.S.-Canada border, and there to be met by another road that would connect to Point Levis, on the southern bank of the St. Lawrence River, opposite Quebec, a distance of 241 miles. The text marshalls several arguments in favor of the railroad. The attractive map, dated 1879, shows the Maine coast from Pemaquid Point to Seguin Island. Additionally, a contemporary mounted photograph of Wiscasset Harbor has been laid into this copy. The photograph was taken by Higgins of Bath, Maine, and shows the harbor and homes on the opposite shore. OCLC locates only two copies of this pamphlet, at the DeGolyer Library, and Carleton University. OCLC 13341965. N° de ref. de la librería 1249
