Not too long ago, I got what I thought was a pretty sweet deal on an old Lucius Beebe book. It's called " HIGHBALL: A Pageant of Trains." This particular one was printed in 1945 by BONANZA/Crown Publisher's Inc. out of NY, NY. It cost me a whole $4.50 in 2000. The back of the dust cover has advertisements for four other Bonanza books at the time. Overall, the jacket is in so-so condition, but I'd consider the book, itself, to be in good condition. I think of how many self-appointed professional rail photographers tell us what they think, but this seemed to be a pioneer prototype for today's books on trains.
