2.   Lathrop, Gilbert A.
Whispering Rails.

Forty Years a Locomotive Engineer: Thrilling Tales of the Rail.
Publisher: Prescott WA: Chas. H. O'Neil, Publisher, 1913.
Second Edition Twelvemo, about 7.5 inches tall, in green cloth decorated in black. 148 pages illustrated by photographs. A collection of discreet events in a long career starting on the Wabash and then ending in the state of Washington. This is a "told to" reminiscence, the publisher being the actual writer. There is a signature on the title page, but it is neither the author nor the publisher. The author's name is spelled "Reid" only under his portrait photo. The endpapers are acidic so the adjacent leaves are toned, but otherwise clean and sound. The covers have modes edge wear. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good
