  1. A great list of helpful posts…thanks so much for doing this!

  2. There were some eighty hobby-horse velocipede prints, almost all dating from 1819. Each one is illustrated with comments in my book ‘Before the Bicycle’ published last year (available through http://www.artesius.org). Roger Street
