Prospect Mountain: Otis Incline Railway.
Published c.1892-1900, Lake George, New York, W.H. Tippets.
Very rare folding Lake George tourist promotional brochure, single oblong sheet folded into 8 panels. Text in English. Illustrated with 6 B&W photographic plates, plus text.
Apparently issued right after the completion of this engineering marvel, a rare item issued by a local publisher.
Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper remains overall clean. A fresh survival, perhaps tucked away back at the time it was acquired and today surviving by random chance nearly as issued condition.
Rare thin ephemeral survival for this unique 19th century tourist mountain transport system (see wiki).
The fragile item displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this scarce ephemeral item survives.
Covers measures c. 5" H x 3 1/2" W.
