Deluxe edition with a separate portfolio of ephemera and a copy of A Personal Souvenir - Strekfus SteamersForeword by John Neal Hoover. This catalogue contains selections from the St. Louis Mercantile Library, which houses the largest American rail history collection in a North American Library. It contains papers, books, and historic photographs from the collector and rail executive, John W. Barriger III, as well as other collections from historical societies and libraries. As the rail collection developed, a collection on the history of American waterways seemed to be the next step in the collection development.
