Very Good. Little Edgeworn DJ. From the inside cover: "The present book, written under the auspices of Columbia University, sets forth the conditions prevailing in the eighteenseventies as Henry Ford, and a dozen others who would become automotive pioneers, grew to manhood. It describes the forces and men that produced the gasoline engine and the first automobile. It tells how Henry Ford as a youth felt impatient with farm drudgery and vaguely determined to end it; how from a machinist's apprentice he rose to the post of engine expert and operating engineer, then by invention and adaptation produced a horseless carriage; how with the formation of the Ford Motor Company he conceived of a light, cheap car and eventually made it a reality by developing mass production to a new point of efficiency." WITH 80 ILLUSTRATIONS.
