9780300120479: Bicycle: The History
Review:

"The bicycle itself is a wonderful invention, one of those that has - quite simply - made the world a better place. David Herlihy and the Yale University Press are to be congratulated for doing it proper humour." Sunday Telegraph "A comprehensive genealogy of the two-wheeled saviour of mass transit... Herlihy takes what could have been just another history book and makes it a story worth telling your friends about." Publishers Weekly "Immensely absorbing... Herlihy's prodigious research is always entertaining, as are the period illustrations that copiously grace the volume." Edward Koren, New York Times Book Review "Lovingly written and beautifully illustrated." David Schoonmaker, American Scientist "A delight." Robert Messenger, Wall Street Journal "Bicycle is a good read for all and a must for the cyclist's home library." Joe Simnacher, Dallas Morning News "One of the best cycling-related books I've seen in the past decade." Joe Lindsey, Mountain Bike"

Review:

"David Herlihy's epic Bicycle: The History is a comprehensive guide to the early evolution of the bicycle. Filled with anecdotes from the late 19th and early 20th century, along with hundreds of photos, drawings and catalog excerpts, this is a book that can be consumed in bits, browsed or read with careful attention." -Kent Peterson, Outside -- Kent Peterson Outside

Descripción Yale University Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New edition. 257 x 178 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. During the nineteenth century, the bicycle evoked an exciting new world in which even a poor person could travel afar and at will. But was the mechanical horse truly destined to usher in a new era of road travel or would it remain merely a plaything for dandies and schoolboys? In Bicycle: The History (named by Outside magazine as the #1 book on bicycles), David Herlihy recounts the saga of this far-reaching invention and the passions it aroused. The pioneer racer James Moore insisted the bicycle would become as common as umbrellas. Mark Twain was more skeptical, enjoining his readers to get a bicycle. You will not regret it-if you live. Because we live in an age of cross-country bicycle racing and high-tech mountain bikes, we may overlook the decades of development and ingenuity that transformed the basic concept of human-powered transportation into a marvel of engineering. This lively and engrossing history retraces the extraordinary story of the bicycle-a history of disputed patents, brilliant inventions, and missed opportunities. Herlihy shows us why the bicycle captured the public s imagination and the myriad ways in which it reshaped our world. Nº de ref. de la librería AAH9780300120479
