ROPER'S
INSTRUCTIONS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR ENGINEERS AND FIREMEN

Second Edition, Revised.
By
STEPHEN ROPER, Engineer
About the Book: This book was for anyone who wish to take charge of any class of steam-engines or boilers, stationary, locomotive, or marine.
Publisher: DAVID McKAY PUBLISHER.
1022 Market Street, Philadelphia
Copyright: 1897
The first unrevised edition was 1883
Stats and Measurments: Leather covered boards. A little under 6" x 4" and consisting of 66 pages, not including the 4 pages in the back of the book advertising other books for engineers and firmen.
Condition: Good read condition. There are no tears in the book and the only handwritting is Herschel Basil Jones, and what appears to be Lordsburg Pala and found on the first blank page. The leather binding has wear and could use a leather treatment. The leather is really wearing on the spine and the spine is chipped on the top and the bottom. The worse being 1/2" at the bottom of the spine. I would suggest this book be handled with latex gloves. Even tho the threads show, the pages are all secure in the binding.

A nice book for any collector of old books, trains, or instruction books.
This would make a nice addition to any library.
Price: $49.95 + $3.00 Shipping with Delivery Confirmation in a New Box
For a total of $52.95

FOR THE WHITE ROSE OF ARNO

By
OWEN RHOSCOMYL
Author of "The Jewel of YNYS GALON," "Battlement and Tower"
The following is in part from the Epistle to the Reader: I should like to point out that in discussing Charles Edward's march to Derby and subsequent retreat, sufficient weight has never yet been allowed to that part of the Jacobite movement dealt with in this tale. The reason for this lack, however, is a most potent one - neither the documentary nor the traditionary history of that part of the movement has yet been printed. But a great deal of material for such a history still exist, in spite of long neglect, and may some day be gathered and given to the world. In the meantime these pages may serve to shed a little light upon the more dramatic scenes and of an almost forgotten episode, and at the same time to indicate what was perhaps the chief reason why Charles Edward's march upon London ended at Derby.
It is proper to state here that this is the first time that allusion has ever been made in print to the messenger who was undoubtedly despatched from Preston to Wynstay. The story, however, came to me from a source which I hold beyond question, and so must be allowed to stand as evidence in its bare simplicity, even if not in the embroidered outlines of the text.
And so I leave you, Dear Sir and Madam, to discover in the story the application of the allusions in the epistle, the while I sign myself and remain.
Yours very truly,
THE AUTHOR.
Publisher: LONGMANS, GREEN, AND CO.
Copyright: 1896
I have found through my research, I believe this to be a First Edition
Stats and Measurments: Hardbound. 7 1/2" 5 1/4" and consisting of 324 pages not to include a section in the back of the book advertising other books.
Condition: Good read condition. There are no tears and no handwritting in the book. There is a 1" red lable at the bottom of the first blank page that has the following: BRENTANO'S Booksellers & Stationer 204-206 Wabash Ave, Chicago, Ills.. The cover has some wear, edge rubbing, and the two upper corners are bumped. The pages are all secure in the binding.
A wonderful book for a collector of old books.
