[2] pp 16 [3 foldout plates] Scarce technical guide to the automatic vacuum brake which became almost universal on British rolling stock for a century from the 1870s onwards. Blue textured cloth over card wrappers, original sewing, first and last leaves detached. Three concertina-fold plates depicting the engine and railway carriages on glazed linen, semi-transparent paper. The vacuum brake seems to have been a joint effort between the London based company and the Manchester Gresham and Craven ironworks. Worldcat locates one copy only at the University of York, not in BL or elsewhere.
