History of the Southern Railway. Argentine Graphic Establishment. Buenos Aires. 1937
Very rare. 4to (27.1 x 19 cm / 10.66 x 7.48 in.), 692 pages (includes Cover), with the first pages somewhat punished; some few underlined and others very few, stained. Modern binding, gilded titles.
It is a fundamental work for the study of the Argentine railway system. Its historical account goes back to 1861 with the antecedents of the creation of the concession company at the initiative of Eduardo Lumb, a British citizen living in Buenos Aires.
Written by Rögind and first published in a newsletter published by said company, after his death was adapted by Héctor Olivera Lavié for publication as a book. The definitive version has a copious iconographic material -maps, photographs, engravings, paintings and sketches-, of enormous value. It provides information of great interest, which transcends the history of that railway branch throughout its area of influence; from the city of Buenos Aires to the south of the province and north of Patagonia.
