1969. Item #77670
KIDDER, Glen M. RAILWAY TO THE MOON. (Littleton, NH: Courier Printing Company for the author, 1969). Limited edition; this copy is no. 1487 from an edition of not more than 1500 copies. Many illustrations from photos. 184 pp. Octavo, brown cloth, gilt-stamped title to spine and upper board. As the author explains in an autograph letter, which is laid-in at the start of the volume, this is one of several copies rebound by him and issued without a dust-jacket due to a fire next to the printer's office. It is a clean and fresh copy despite the slightly rippled book block; thus near fine. A history of the Mount Washington [Cog] Railway, the "brainchild" of Sylvester Marsh.
