Nelson's Guides
Nelson's Guides
1871
$975.
These are the earliest guides for the transcontinental railroad that I have seen. It is unusual to find either one outside a museum, and a fairly well matched set like this is quite rare. The archival custom box is beautifully done in colors that match the guides and has images of both guides on the front cover. *** The UPRR guide covers the route from Omaha to Ogden. It has 45 pages of text and 12 chromo-lithograph views. *** The CPRR guide covers the route from Ogden to San Francisco with 11 views, including a beautiful miniature birds-eye of San Francisco. Both guides have a map of the entire U.S.
