Joys And Sorrows Of An Automobilist

James, Walter
(Earth Heart, 1992)

The manuscript for this little book was found by the author's grandchildren while clearing out family papers. James owned a farm near Portsmouth, N.H. & commuted to MIT in Cambridge, MA where he was a Professor of Mechanical Engineering. In 1918 after buying his first car, a 1912 Cadillac, which would nowadays be considered a "lemon", he then purchased a 1918 Model T Ford. His adventures with both these vehicles are told in this fascinating account of early motoring in N.E.
