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 proves a fascinating historical retrospective of the bicycle's development and evolution. Gil King is a writer, editor, and photographer whose work has appeared in many national publications.
