Early railroad-themed publication...
Item # 628309
March 20, 1847
AMERICAN RAILROAD JOURNAL, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, March 20, 1847 Obviously a railroad-themed publication, the first in the nation (founded in 1831) replete with railroad articles, ads, etc., and with a very early image of a train in the masthead, along with a steamboat. Inside shows 2 engines of the "Norris' Locomotive Works" and other railroad-related prints (see images).
Sixteen pages, 8 3/4 by 11 inches light damp staining, generally nice.
