The New Vision: The Locomotive (its esthetics).
First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author “To Mr. Edward Budd Jr., very sincerely, Raymond Loewy. April 1937.” A superb association of the author’s first book, a presentation from Loewy, the “Father of Streamlining”, to the man whose company built the legendary Burlington Zephyr in 1934, generally regarded as the first successful streamliner on American railroads.
