Dustjacket is lightened around edges and spine, with tiny tears and chips at top corners and head of spine. Pictorial endpapers. INSIDE: The development of the Shay Locomotive, invented by Ephraim Shay, which revolutionized the timber industry in the late 1800s. The patented, gear-driven locomotive could run on a pair of rough wooden poles if necessary, and was powerful enough in rugged terrain to access valuable timber in remote mountainous areas and keep operations running in all seasons. Including a history of the Lima Locomotive Works, which built the Shay locomotive, and a description of the logging industry, which used it. In his research, Koch found previously undiscovered letters in Shay's former home and correspondence between Shay and U. S. patent examiners. Illus. by 8 full color paintings protected by heavy paper textured with the design of spiderwebs; and more than 600 period B&W photographs, many of them published here for the first time.
