Great item for the fire-fighting collector...
Item # 657050
November 15, 1856
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, Nov. 15, 1856
* Great pre-Civil War fire engine print
For the collector of fire-fighting memorabilia, this is a terrific issue.
The entire front page is taken up with a very detailed & terrific print titled: "The New Steam Fire Engine" which was called the "Neptune", manufactured by Silsby, Mynderse & Company in Seneca Falls, N.Y. The description begins at the bottom of the ftpg. & carries over to page 2. A terrific issue for display.
Much other invention-related content within but it pales in comparison to the front page print.
Sixteen pages, 11 by 15 3/4 inches, very nice condition.
