Brandywine Springs: The Rise and Fall of a Delaware Resort
Author: Weslager, C. A.
Publisher: Hambleton Company, Inc., 1949 Wilmington, DE

Book. Book condition: Fair to Good. Good. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall FIRST EDITION, SIGNED by author on half-title page! "..Brandywine Springs was more than a popular amusement park, more than a picnic ground, more than the magical terminal where the summer cars of the Peoples Railway unloaded thousands of visitors during the summer months. The site of the park itself, as Mr. Weslager shows, can be traced back to the days of William Penn when the property was part of the vast tract known as 'Letitia Manor.' ..An inn at Brandywine Springs known as 'The Conestoga Wagon' catered to the thirsty waggoners who brought loads of grain from Lancaster County to the shipping wharves at Newport. Then in 1826 - still almost 100 years before the amusement park - a syndicate of Quaker business men erected a magnificent hotel at Brandywine Springs in an attempt to exploit the chalybeate waters in competition with the prosperous Virginia spas. Subsequently, the hotel and grounds were purchased by Matthew Newkirk, a Philadelphia railroad magnate, and refurbished and glamorized through the expenditure of large sums of money..Brandywine Springs is a fascinating story, and although he devotes several chapters to the amusement park, the author has concentrated on the earlier period, presenting an abundance of new material as a result of painstaking research." Illustrated with black and white photo section. xiii + 124 pages. Book is in FAIR to GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; protective plastic wrapper.
