The Accident on the West Jersey Railroad: A Recitation

(Philadelphia): A.W. Auner, Song Publisher & Printer, [circa 1880].

Price: $150.00

Unbound. Presumed first edition. Measuring 4.75" x 7.75". Slight age-toning, very near fine. 32 line poetry recitation or song sheet commemorating a horrific railroad accident that occurred at Mays Landing on a trip from Camden to Atlantic City, killing 26 and injuring scores of others. *OCLC* locates a single copy, attributing the date to the 1860s, but as the accident occurred on August 11, 1880, we're skeptical of that attribution.
