8 inches by 10.75 inches. Unpaginated. Illustrated endpapers. Frontis illustration. Profusely illustrated. . DJ FINE. Lloyd Lewis was a journalist, historian, and major figure in a remarkable world of arts and letters that flourished in Chicago following World War I. In 1930 he joined the Chicago Daily News as drama critic, becoming subsequently sports editor, managing editor, and columnist. Lewis was an ardent Chicagoan and Midwesterner with a voracious interest in the Civil War. His published work included Chicago: The History of Its Reputation (1929, with Henry Justin Smith); Jayhawkers, a three-act Broadway play coauthored with Sinclair Lewis (1935); and highly regarded biographies of Generals Sherman and Grant. Chicago's Newberry Library was his second home; he established the library's superb collection of modern (chiefly Midwestern) manuscripts. The Burlington Northern Railroad was a United States-based railroad company. Its historical lineage begins in the earliest days of railroading with the chartering in 1848 of the Chicago and Aurora Railroad, a direct ancestor line of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad, which lends Burlington to the names of various merger-produced successors. For this work, the compilers had the full cooperation of the Burlington Railroad which made available the photographs in its archives. The records of the Burlington Railroad had been deposited in the Newberry Library for the use of qualified scholars. Based upon this 'treasure trove' it was determined to present in pictorial form the outstanding importance of railroads, especially those of the Mississippi Valley and Great Plains sections, in promoting the development and growth of the country. First Edition [stated], presumed first printing.
