THE AMERICAN BICYCLER: A Manual for the Observer, the Learner, and the Expert. By Charles E. Pratt, A. M, B. Bi. C. (Buffalo Bicycle Club). Boston: Houghton, Osgood & Co.

This little book will prove very serviceable to all who are interested in the bicycle. It begins with an excellent historical account of the first inventions in this line, and describes the gradual development of the present bicycle from the old velocipede. Two chapters are devoted to a full description of the manufacture and mechanics of the machine, and another to suggestions for learners. Advice about riding and racing, and information in regard to the laws and courtesies of the road, take up the next chapters. A list of thirty-nine routes, most of them in the vicinity of Boston, is given, and tables of the fastest time on record for all distances. Chapter eleven contains a model constitution for a bicycle club, and an excellent index ends the book. We have no doubt that this work will have a large sale.
