About this Item

Colorful promotional brochure for an improved bicycle brake. 16mo. 16 by 9 cm. Unpaginated, 16 pp., including wraps. A narrative poem accompanies delightful color illustrations of family members using the bicycle in a variety of ways. Echoing the verse on each page is a short non-verse plug for an aspect of the brake system and the safer, easier bike resulting. The illustrations stand out for their gentle caricaturing of family types, their playful air and their winsome washes of color. They seem to play on a cheerful nostalgia, although they are depicting then contemporary scenes. The brochure also pitches the medical benefits of bicycle riding. the particular invention, the coaster brake or back pedal brake, was first invented in 1898; we take on trust that new Departures had made some tweak to the invention that advanced bicycle safety and ease of use. Light soiling to the wraps. Other than light age toning, the leaves are otherwise clean and bright. Bookseller Inventory # 004986

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.
