Burlington's Streamliner Mother Goose Rhymes. Illustrated by John Averill.

Chicago: the railroad, no date, circa 1945. Unpaginated, about twelve pages, softbound; a 9x6 inch stapled pamphlet in color wraps and spot-color each cover-verso. Printed line-illustrations on each page are accompanied by a quattrain of doggerel celebrating Burlington's fleet of fourteen "Zephyr" diesel locomotives. Each drawing is meant to be crayoned by restless child or you the bored passenger. Wraps have picked up mild dust-soil and a bit of rust from absent paperclip, in front a bookseller's inventory number and a short ownership presentation verso; a nice copy completely sans coloring.

That Mr.Cotsworth authored this item is speculation derived from otherwise inexplicable mention on the inside back cover. Our guess as to date is from info withn, that "Burlington is nearing its hundredth anniversary.. it was founded in 1850"
