New Jersey. Engineering News Publishing Co., July - December / 1887.
Volume XVIII. 3 double page color maps, b/w full page and in text ills, xii + 484pp, folio (14 x 10 inches), cloth covered boards (hardbound) with spine title label. Good condition. Bound volume of the journal covering the period from July 2 to December to December 31. There is much information on bridges and railways under construction in the U.S. and in many foreign countries, with black and white illustrations throughout. Of particular interest are three detailed color maps in the Engineering News Series of Maps: "No. 2. Track Laid in the Calendar Year 1886", "No. 3 States East of Chicago" and "No. 4 Southern States" (the latter two showing: track laid since Jan. 1, 1887, Lines under construction, Lines surveyed or under survey, Lines projected). Quite a fascinating compilation. Item #27795
