Bicycles & tricycles; an elementary treatise

Courtesy of the Make blog, here's a link to an 1896 book on the design of bicycles and tricycles. I suspect a lot has been learned about bicycle design in the past 100 years, but I think it's pretty interesting to see how much design theory had been developed at this early stage.
