Early railroad-themed publication...

Item # 648932

May 08, 1847

AMERICAN RAILROAD JOURNAL, Philadelphia, May 8, 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, very nice condition.
