Cycling Art, Energy and Locomotion - A Series of Remarks on the Development of Bicycles, Tricycles, and Man-Motor Carriages
First published in 1889, this vintage book constitutes an interesting an informative treatise on cycling, being an exploration of energy, locomotion, and the history and development thereof. Profusely illustrated and accessible, "Cycling Art" will appeal to modern cycling enthusiasts and would make for a worthy addition to collections of sporting literature. Contents include: "The Cycle Art", "Can we Improve upon the Creator's Methods?", "The Direct Application of Power", "The Connecting Link between the Legs of Nature and the Wheel of Mechanics", "Graphic Illustration of the Application of Power to Cycles-Kinematics", "Balancing, and Some Questions of Potential Energy-Hill-Climbing", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the History of the Bicycle.
