1 MacMillan Macmillan Encyclopedia of Transportation (6 Volume Set)
New York MacMillan Reference Books 2000 0028653610 / 9780028653617 Hardcover Fine 
0028653610 From horses to race cars, sailboats to the Titanic , and the Wright brothers to the space shuttle, this set provides basic information on how and why things move. More than 500 entries provide students with basic information about the historical, economic, scientific, and cultural aspects of transport. The focus is on the U.S., although major international topics are also included. Coverage is representative rather than comprehensive. For example, Chevrolet and Cadillac have their own entries, while Ford and Chrysler are only mentioned in broader entries on the automobile industry. Similarly, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad is given its own entry, but larger and more significant rail lines are not. Six volume set, Pictorial laminated boards, tight bindings and pages, unmarked. Appear as new. Entries are written for a high-school or middle-school audience, presenting information in a readable and entertaining manner. Color illustrations are used throughout, and many entries have sidebars that present anecdotes and related information. Definitions of key terms are provided in the margin of each article as well as in the glossary in the final volume. Cross-references are used liberally throughout the work. Each volume has its own index, with a cumulative index provided as an appendix to the final volume. A time line, complete glossary, and bibliography are also included in the appendixes. No Priority or International shipping available for this heavy set.
