First American railroad publication, from its first year...



Item # 611405

March 8, 1834

AMERICAN RAILROAD JOURNAL, New York, March 8, 1834  This is a very early issue--a volume three issue--of the very first American periodical on railroading. The best feature of this newspaper is the great and very early engraving of a railroad train in the masthead, showing an engine with three cars. Note the simplicity of the train, but keep in mind this is from the very beginning years of the railroad industry. 
There are railroad-related articles in this 16 page issue but there is also other news of the day including military reports as well as congressional reports and more.  Measures 9 by 12 1/2 inches and in great condition.
