Try the following:

Detroit Public Library - National Automotive History Collection
http://www.detroitpubliclibrary.org/nahc/
They have an extensive collection of early automobile literature and will photocopy items for a fee.

Antique Automobile Club of America library (Hershey, PA)
http://www.aacalibrary.org/

Dealers of early automotive literature include:

Bob Johnson's Auto Literature
http://www.autopaper.com/

Walter Miller's Automobile Literature
http://www.autolit.com/

Also - consider obtaining a copy of Dyke's Automobile and Gasoline Engine Encyclopedia. They were updated yearly. A copy from 1915 to 1920 would probably suffice.

A new reprint of the 1911 Dykes Encyclopedia is available for about $25.00. An original used copy of the 1917 Dykes Encycopedia is available through Amazon at about $125.00. I found these books using my favorite site. www.bookfinder4u.com

Otto,

I would also recommend contacting the Horseless Carriage Foundation
http://www.hcfi.org/ with your request. There is a good chance they will be able make a copy of one for you. I would recommend request that it be placed on a CD as it allows you to zoom in on the pictures etc. They may also be able to recommend a HCCA Gazette magazine that covers you car. Be sure to let them know the model etc. From memory I believe they had a magazine devoted to White Steamers within the last 5 years. But you can view or download their magazine index at:
http://www.hcca.org/gazetteindex.html

Respectfully submitted,

By far the best resource for free online manuals is the AACA. Click here:
