Default Old International Harvester Literature

Folks,

I've come into possession of some old International Harvester literature. It is a 40 page booklet titled "Little Drops of Gasoline". Based on dates in the booklet I would guess it was printed around 1909 or 1910. It contains descriptions and specifications of International Gear-Drive Tractors models A through C. It also contains a bunch of letters of testimony from satisfied owners. I am not well versed in tractors of this age, nor do I know much about literature. Can anybody provide some insight about this booklet? Does it have any value? Thanks for the insight!

Some scans would probably help determine value. Definitely something this old is collectible. I tried bidding on a similar one on e-bay few months back, but didn't bid high enough. Someone would definitely want it.

Here are a couple of pictures of the booklet. One is of the cover and the other is a picture of the Type A tractor. Perhaps this will help!

I am interested in selling the booklet but have no idea how much I should ask for it. I'd rather sell it here than on ebay. What do you think?

Use the classified section and put a number on it. I have no idea what it's worth, but you should get some interested parties!

I've finally taken the leap and posted the literature on ebay. Thanks again for all your help and happy bidding!

The 2019 season for field work of International Harvester equipment is almost here. We have had enough winter weather
let's think about spring.
