        NEPWA POLISH 1St year school reader

      WINNIPEG: A.HHOMIK, 1950 Known to its aboriginal dwellers as a good hunting and gathering area, Neepawa in fact means "Land of Plenty" in the Cree language. Early fur traders and settlers knew Neepawa as an area of stable lcimate, good soils and abundant harvests. When the Province of Manitoba was established in 1870, the Neepawa area lay within what was then known as "The Northwest Territories", just to the west of the postage stamp province. During the next 30 years, a wave of settlers descended upon the area. The feverish activity established the framework on which the present day community was built. The first settlers came from the British Isles and groups of Eastern European settlers soon followed. The most notable of these was the Hun's Valley Settlement, a colony of Polish and Hungarian settlers.

        Some Notes on No. 26

      San Francisco, CA: Three Fingers Press, 1950. Soft Cover. Very Good. 48mo - over 3" - 4" tall. Book shows a publication date of 1950, but it was actually released in 1951. Handcrafted, string bound, heavy card wrappers with 14 uncut leaves upon which are mounted a number of original photographs and ephemera relating to the Virginia and Truckee Railroad's heavy Ten-Wheeler locomotive, No. 26. Very nice shape. There are over 20 original photographs and significant pieces of ephemera that "have with loving care been gathered, collated, hand set, pasted, bound up and cursed into book form . . . on the first anniversary of the demise of V & T No. 26." The book includes a signed 3-page essay about the demise of small railroads and a description of the loss of the No. 26 in an engine-house fire in 1950. Photographs include images of the train at work as well as its flaming destruction. The ephemera includes a 1876 V&T bank check, a 1878 invoice, a timetable, and a bill of lading. The author was a mining engineer and research mineralogist who worked for the Aurora Creek Gold Mining Company and at Stanford University's School of Mineral Sciences, where he published a number of scholarly articles and monographs. A rabid rail fan, Beatty focused his hobby on the railroads of Nevada and Eastern California. Although unspecified, the distribution of this work was no doubt quite limited. Very scarce. As of 2016, no examples are listed in OCLC, no auction records are reported by ABPC or Rare Book Hub, and only one other copy is for sale (for $2,000) in the trade.
