Automobile Catechism and Repair Manual: A Series of Questions and Answers Covering the Construction, Care, and Operation of Automobiles ..
by Swingle, Calvin F.and H. A. Tarantous
Chicago: Frederick J. Drake & Co, 1919. Softcover. VG (Slightly aged, with title rubbed off front cover, otherwise clean.). Black flexible leather-like boards, marbled flyleaves, red-rimmed pages, 162 pp., BW illus. An early automobile repair manual. Takes the "catechism" motif to heart even in appearance, as it looks like a smaller, thinner Bible. Some helpful Don'ts: "Don't use a match or a small torch to inspect the carburetor. It sometimes leads to unexpected results." "Don't smoke while filling the gasoline tank." Good to know. Please note that this is an original printed copy of this manual, and not an ebook, paperback reprint, or print-on-demand title. As such, it is rare.
