Description

This photographic survey is richly illustrated with images of one of the world's largest private collections of bicycles from the 1850s to the 1950s, and includes some never-before-published photographs. From antique high wheelers and "boneshakers" to tandems, tricycles, and circus clown bikes, it provides a fascinating historical retrospective of the bicycle's development and evolution.
