Description : Co-Winner of the 2005 Hagley Business History Book Prize given by the Busines History Conference. In 1926, the Carriage Builders' National Association met for the last time, signaling the automobile's final triumph over the horse-drawn carriage. Only a decade earlier, carriages and wagons were still a common sight on every Main Street in America. In the previous century, carriage-building had been one of the largest and most dynamic industries in the country. In this sweeping study of a forgotten trade, Thomas A. Kinney extends our understanding of nineteenth-century American industrialization far beyond the steel mill and railroad. The legendary Studebaker Brothers Manufacturing Company in 1880 produced a hundred wagons a day—one every six minutes. Across the country, smaller factories fashioned vast quantities of buggies, farm wagons, and luxury carriages. Today, if we think of carriage and wagon at all, we assume it merely foreshadowed the automobile industry. Yet., the carriage industry epitomized a batch-work approach to production that flourished for decades. Contradicting the model of industrial development in which hand tools, small firms, and individual craftsmanship simply gave way to mechanized factories, the carriage industry successfully employed small-scale business and manufacturing practices throughout its history. The Carriage Trade traces the rise and fall of this heterogeneous industry, from the pre-industrial shop system to the coming of the automobile, using as case studies Studebaker, the New York–based luxury carriage-maker Brewsters, and dozens of smallerfirms from around the country. Kinney also explores the experiences of the carriage and wagon worker over the life of the industry. Deeply researched and strikingly original, this study contributes a vivid chapter to the story of America's industrial revolution.

Description : The first volume of this work, covering the period from 1741-1850, was issued in 1931 by another publisher, and is reissued now without change, under our imprint. The second volume covers the period from 1850 to 1865; the third volume, the period from 1865 to 1885. For each chronological period, Mr. Mott has provided a running history which notes the occurrence of the chief general magazines and the developments in the field of class periodicals, as well as publishing conditions during that period, the development of circulations, advertising, payments to contributors, reader attitudes, changing formats, styles and processes of illustration, and the like. Then in a supplement to that running history, he offers historical sketches of the chief magazines which flourished in the period. These sketches extend far beyond the chronological limitations of the period. The second and third volumes present, altogether, separate sketches of seventy-six magazines, including The North American Review, The Youth's Companion, The Liberator, The Independent, Harper's Monthly, Leslie's Weekly, Harper's Weekly, The Atlantic Monthly, St. Nicholas, and Puck. The whole is an unusual mirror of American civilization.

Description : "Hiram Smith Williams, born in New Jersey, was an unusual individual. A skilled carriagemaker and carpenter, he traveled throughout the Midwest in the 1850s as an organizer for the Know Nothing Party and the candidacy of Martin Van Buren. When Van Buren failed to win the presidency in 1856, Williams spent two years wandering around Missouri, teaching school and writing poetry. In addition to his political activities, he served as a correspondent for several midwestern newspapers." "In 1859, Williams settled in Livingston, Alabama, where he worked as a carriagemaker. He quickly identified with the people around him and when the Civil War erupted in 1861, he supported the Southern cause. In 1862, he enlisted in the 40th Alabama Infantry Regiment, and through 1863 he served on detached duty as a skilled naval carpenter in Mobile. While in Mobile, Williams was active in the cultural and social life of the city and frequently appeared in plays as a semi-professional actor." "In 1864, he was reassigned to his regiment, part of the Army of Tennessee, which was camped in Dalton, Georgia. From February 1864 until autumn of that year, he participated in the Atlanta campaign as a member of a Pioneer unit, which was composed of men with construction skills. In that capacity he helped build bridges, roads, and fortifications, came in close contact with various headquarters, and sometimes worked as a hospital orderly. In late 1864, he accompanied the remnants of the Army of Tennessee on its retreat from Atlanta into Alabama. He then rejoined the 40th on duty in defense of Mobile harbor until March 1865, when he rejoined the Army of Tennessee in its attempt to stop Sherman." "Williams was taken prisoner just a few days before the end of the war, and spent three months in a prison camp at Point Lookout, Maryland. His diary records the anxiety of the prisoners in Federal camps immediately after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the harsh living conditions, and the continual desire for repatriation." "This War So Horrible is a remarkable diary. It provides a rare look at the concerns, activities, and experiences of the common soldier in a major Confederate Army during a critical campaign. What makes it so unusual is that Williams was well educated and literate. He did not write terse entries in his diary, but rather expounded at length on what he saw, felt, and hoped. While not anti-Southern, Williams was intensely anti-war and anti-military. Civil War students will find this diary useful because it is the only fully descriptive record of a member of the Pioneer Corps. Little is known about how these units operated and what the internal organization was like. The editors have deliberately chosen to let Williams speak for himself ... and the readers will find him lucid, cogent, compelling, and always interesting."--Jacket.

Description : Excerpt from The New York Coach-Maker's Magazine, Vol. 1: Devoted to the Literary, Social Mechanical Interests of the Craft; June, 1858 to May, 1859 No species of writing is more deeply interesting than that of history, and no composition is of greater inter est than that which records the history of a fellow-man. Should the subject of that histo be a member of our own craft, that circumstance adds ditional interest, and we are led instinctively to inquire: When and where was he born? What were his earlier tastes and predilections? W'hat were his earlier advantages of education? What his peculiar trait of character as manhood developed itself 1 etc., etc. All these questions, we affirm, are perfectly na tural, and oflen, when they are satisfactorily answered, we discover that, in this country, at least, our most distinguish ed men are those who, by untiring industry and an honor able course of life, have been the makers of their own fortunes. It is ver true there may be exceptions to this rule - some may Nave had fortunes thrust u on them but then they belong rather to the exception t an the rule. It has come to be the boasted peculiarity of our free institu tions, that all alike - the rich and the poor - may find an open door to the Temple of Fame and the magazines of wealth. This is unquestionan _ao in a qualified sense. Among the members of our own profession we know of none more deserving of a niche in our Portrait Gallery than Mr. James Brewster, of New Haven, Conn, not merely be cause he is one of the oldest living members of our frater nity, and has been one of its most successful business men, but because he has always shown a peculiar interest for the welfare of all with whom business has brought him in connection; but more of this hereafter.
