This is a sale of two books aboutNorthern California Railroads. Both volumes were written and autographed by Fred Matthews and published by Sundance Publication, Ltd., of Denver Colorado. Both volumes have the same Introduction where the author states, "These volumes constitute a personal, or more exactly a family's survey of the railways of Northern California during the decade and a half after the end of World War II... Northern California is a somewhat blurry concept... a test of this subjective hinterland would be the zone in which 'going to the City' could be taken as meaning San Francisco." The differences in the volumes are only explained through the Table of Contents.They are well illustrated with a full page black and white (a few in color) photographs on almost every page, all with informative captions . The first two pictures above are the actual front and back of the two books. The next five pictures are the Volume I cover, the Table of Contents and three pictures from around pages 60, 120 and 180. The last five pictures are a repeat for Volume II. Both are hardbound without a dust jacket but with a clear plastic cover and measure 8 1/2 by 11 by 3/4 inches and are 224 pages long. They were originally listed on for $110 for the set of two.
