Item # 604030
November 5, 1898
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, Oct. 1, 1898 This is a very significant magazine in the history of automobiles, as the noted reference work "Kane's Famous First Facts" notes that the mentioned advertisement was the first automobile ad ever published in America. It is not the first appearance, which was in the issue of July 30, 1898.
A back page advertisement is headed: "The Winton Motor Carriage" and describes the automobile manufactured by "The Winton Motor Carriage Co., Cleveland, Ohio".
The advertisement is 2 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches and includes a small but nice photo of the car.
Sixteen pages, a bit irregular at the spine, otherwise in nice condition.
