Traction Engines on Highways: their use and abuse.
Exeter: Henry S. Eland. 1882 Orig. wrappers, titlepage on front wrapper, sewn as issued; a few small chips to margins, spine sl. split at head & tail. 4 digit ink number at head of front wrapper. Overall a good-plus copy of a scarce pamphlet. 40pp.BL only on Copac; no additional copies on OCLC. An argument against the legislation allowing for the increased use of traction engines on the narrow country roads of England. 'I have known men deprived of a livelihood who used to cart coal and lime from stations; their work taken up by Traction Engines. So the poor suffer also, as well as farmers and all classes; and not only are they dangerous to all who use horses, but to children and others in narrow streets, and the noise and smoke most annoying to inhabitants of towns and villages. No man should seek to gain a living by annoying his neighbours.'
