1800's Bicycle Catalog Collection on CD

A trip to the past shows just how much has changed in the last 100 years or so of Bicycling, yet many things have also stayed the same. Loads of information, and really great photos, these are not just catalogs, but a history of wonderful bicycle artwork.

Bicycles were introduced in the 19th century and now number about one billion worldwide. They are the principal means of transportation in many regions. They also provide a popular form of recreation, and have been adapted for such uses as children's toys, adult fitness, military and police applications, courier services, and competitive sports.

The basic shape and configuration of a typical bicycle has changed little since the first chain-driven model was developed around 1885. Many details have been improved, especially since the advent of modern materials and computer-aided design. These have allowed for a proliferation of specialized designs for particular types of cycling.

This collection includes the six following catalogs:

:: 1891 Cormully & Jeffery Mfg. Co - Over 60 pages of unique bicycle accessories, bicycle repair tools, riding apparel and more.
