Those Daylight 4-8-4's, SIGNED by Robert (R. J.) Church, W/ Mylar DJ cover:
$42

Published in 1966, this is an autographed copy of a book that provides an amazingly detailed look at some of the finest, fastest, and last steam locomotives made in this country. Signed copies are quite rare; shows none, so I checked on bookfinder.com and found about 30 ads for copies from around the country, at prices that topped out at $130, and none of them were signed.
The book is about 11 by 9 inches, and about 120 pages plus some of the largest fold-out diagrams I've ever seen: over 5 pages wide! There are hundreds of black and white pictures and charts detailing how and where the 4-8-4's were designed and built, how and where they were used, and even the tracks they ran on. The book was accompanied by an 8-page article from the August 1999 issue of Trains magazine; the author got to join the crew on a run across Washington state. There are lots of color photos in the article, and I'll send it along with the book.
Condition is at least very good, in my amateur opinion. The only flaws I can identify are very small bumps at the head and heel of the spine, an old crease on the lower right corner of the front cover (see my first picture), anda 1-inch tear on the top left corner of the dust cover (see my final picture).
Shipping is free and the package will carry insurance. Please email me if you have questions or you need to see more pictures.
