Hudson: Observer Press, 1849. First edition, 8vo, pp. 51, [1]; lacking the folding map; accompanied by the report of Prof. Alexander C. Twining, consulting engineer, and the statement of the president and directors to the stockholders of the company. Original tan printed wrappers; upper wrapper loose and reattached with tape, ex-library with blindstamp and markings on title page, from the library of Isaiah Linton, an assistant engineer cited in the report, with a manuscript note on the provenance on upper cover. From the Annual report of the [Ohio] Commissioner of Railroads & Telegraphs, 1902: "This was the fifth railroad company organized in the state, but nothing was done towards building the road of the Company for nearly ten years, when an amendment and revivor to the act of incorporation was passed. After that the work was pushed and legislation in Ohio and Pennsylvania authorized the extension of the road. It has been one of the prosperous companies of the state. In 1871 the road was leased to the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, and has since formed a part of the Pennsylvania system." George R. Eichbaum was a prominent civil engineer and Pennsylvania native.
