These early Locomobile Books are good reference material. Every Locomobile enthusiast should have one of these.


That being said I have a nice copy of this book for the 1911 Locomobile model automobiles.  $125.00 shipping included within the USA. Private message me.

I bought the next year's edition called "The car of 1912" some time ago, which is a bit different in details, has some more chapters (for example rebuilt Locomobiles) and refers to Ms. Fisher's world tour in 1909-1910 many times.

Besides the great information about the Locomobile company and car details, I was curious to learn more about that world tour, and bought a re-print of her book "A womans world tour in a motor" by Harriet White Fisher. Great reading, but poor quality photo reprints. Looks like scanned with low resolution. Later I found an original one on ebay, printed 1911 in Philadelphia, and believe it or not: it came from India! With some pencil notes in the paragraphs when Ms. Fisher was visiting the famous indian scenic attractions. The 70 illustrations are of high quality. One page has been cleanly cut which is supposed to show a famous temple. I wish the book could tell its story...
