A 24-page booklet of illustrated articles from The American Thresherman, 1916-1917. Valuable resource for farm steam-engine collectors.

This small book is a collection of articles by periodical author C.M. Giddings that appeared in the American Threshermen magazine from August 1916 – May 1917. The articles contain more than facts and illustrations, they contain the opinions of a respected veteran of the gas engine and tractor industry. He details various concerns he has for the industry at the time of writing, 1980, as well as various facts and trends which are very telling. His opinions lend themselves to a very gripping tale of the industry not seen in other articles or magazines. Blending history, facts, opinion, and an engrossing writing style, many of those interested in steam traction will appreciate this compilation of articles. Illustrated, 28 pages.
