First published in 1947, this Atlas is its 12th edition. Each new edition is authoritatively expanded and updated to include new information on current manufacturers as well as additions to the history of manufacturers long out of business. More than 12,000 names are listed, providing ready reference to serial numbers, dates of manufacture, factory locations, a brief history of many manufacturers and other pertinent information. Two lifetimes have been devoted to developing this unique publication. Available in either paperback or hardcover.
