A very rare opportunity to purchase what many regard as the definitive roller coaster book.

In 1984 America celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first successful roller coaster device - La Marcus A. Thompson's switchback railway-erected at Coney Island. Robert Cartmell's study dissects the subject, examining every phase from the use of the roller coaster by Albert Einstein to demonstrate his theory of physics, to John Allen's use of psychology in designing one.

Condition: Fine in fine dustjacket
