There were a great many versions of the simple mono-rail idea, and probably the most widely used of the ground level systems was that patented by a Monsieur Henri Jules Caillet of Paris, Little is known of Caillet himself, but a great deal about his railway system - collected here.

The book traces his French, British, Canadian and American patents, and reproduces contemporary accounts of the systems in use, illustrated by period photographs and technical drawings.
