White & Kemble's
Atlas and Digest of Railroad Mortgages

The early 20th Century maps and digest text are provided courtesy of ebay map dealer, Yakima Paper.
The Atlas was updated on a regular basis, with each railroad system bound and replaced separately.
The text provides details of the ownership and financial obligations of each railroad company that became part of the larger railroads.

The White and Kemble Atlas was updated by subscription and older maps were often discarded. The early maps are exceedingly rare. The Library of Congress lists copies in their collection. A Google Worldcat search lists copies in four libraries. The Cincinnati Railroad Club has an incomplete copy from the 1950s.
