Al Edmister's "Bridges of Napa County" is considered the definitive work on the subject. Printed in an edition of only 50 copies, this book has become almost impossible to find. WorldCat does not list any holdings. Reportedly a copy is held at the Napa Valley Firefighters' Museum, Napa Landmark Society, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation of San Francisco.
