There is an original presentation dated 1869 on the dust cover to S. H. Macbeth, the Chief Clerk of the Car Division of the PC and St L Ry railroad from the employees of that railroad car division. This is an historically important inscription from the Pittsburg, Cincinatti, and St. Louis Railway Company which was incorporated on March 23, 1868 and lasted until 1870. This is a wonderful piece of early Americana.
