COMING SOON: “Portrait Of An Automobile Dealer” Second Edition
Coming very soon, the new, improved, updated “Portrait Of An Automobile Dealer”, Second Edition. The first edition was made available through Blurb.com print-on-demand bookstore on Sept 2, 2012. I self-published this book, which means I have the ability to update it and upload a new edition whenever I want. This edition will be in both print and e-book formats.
At this point, I’ve added 60+ pages of additional content and over 100 new photographs. It’ll be the same as the first edition, but better.
Below is the new cover and description:
The History of Reed Brothers Dodge is Virtually the History of the American Automobile Business.
If you wanted to read the history of the American car industry a great place to start would be the history of Reed Brothers Dodge. Reed Brothers Dodge was one of the oldest Dodge dealers under the same family ownership in Maryland, and one of the oldest in the entire nation.
The first Dodge was offered to the public in 1914. Lewis Reed and Roy and Griffith Warfield opened their Dodge dealership and service facility just one year after Dodge made its first automobile. They named it the Rockville Garage.
In 1918, Lewis Reed bough out the Warfields. In 1919, his brother Edgar joined the business and the name changed to Reed Brothers Dodge.
“Portrait Of An Automobile Dealer”, Second Edition, will be available through Blurb.com print-on-demand bookstore very soon, so check back often.
Note: this book is not marked up for profit; but sold at base price.
