Description

Subtitled 'An economical plan for examining the merits of the Velocipede, or Swift Walker', this broadsheet was written by R Childs. There were various forms of 'pedamotive carriage' - also know as velocipedes - but interest in them dropped after the introduction of the bicycle, which was both cheaper and les cumbersome.
