New York: Newcomen Society of North America, 1954.
Octavo (23 x 15.5 cm.), 36 pages. Second printing. An address by Arthur B. Edge Jr., President of Callaway Mills Company, given at a dinner of the Newcomen Society. The Newcomen Society of North America was chartered in 1961, following the earlier establishment in 1923 of the Newcomen Society in England. The focus is on "material history, as distinguished from political history". This includes education, business, banking, railroads, utilities, insurance, & other enterprises contributing to the progress of society. Some oxidation to staples, and a bit of age-toning to edges of wrappers, otherwise fine.
