About this Item

A most unusual and winsome piece of cycling ephemera, with each page featuring a poem, sometimes adapted from a well-known nursery rhyme, and "geared" towards cycling and the promotion of U.S. Tire Co.'s tires, naturally. Besides the charm of the verse, a few other things set apart this promotional brochure: the combination of color lithography with more conventional black and white lithography then the norm in trade catalogues, and the featuring of a cricket as a mascot appearing on every page. Now something we are familiar with, this was not a common advertising device at the time. The tie-in to a cricket was the slogan, "Get the bicycle bug", which is appended to most of the images of the cricket. 32 pp, not including wraps. The brochure measures 6.75 by 5 inches. A business' ink stamp is pressed onto the inside cover, front and back, and a single leaf within. The white of the pages is slightly darkened. The wraps show light wear.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
