Excellent illustrations of 19th century carriages
Includes a wide variety of carriages for all uses, all presumably once available for purchase. Also includes catalog
descriptions of each model, somewhat useful in learning about features on each item. Illustrations appear to be stylized a
bit, very attractive. No photographs. The best book of its type I have seen so far.
