Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Catalog of the Cycle Collection of the Division of Engineering, United States National Museum

About 1816, Baron von Drais constructed a similar machine, the front wheel of which was mounted in a fork that could be swiveled, allowing the device to be steered. His machine, known as the Draisienne or the Draisine, several years later was introduced into England by Denis Johnson, whose improved version had an adjustable saddle, a cushioned rest for the forearms, and a different arrangement of the handle bars. Known in England as the Pedes trian Curricle, the Hobby Horse, or the Dandy Horse, this form of vehicle was in vogue in 1818 and for several years afterward. Con temporary lithographs show dandies practicing on the machine in riding academies, as well as riding it over the open road (pl. It, too, was propelled by the rider's striking his feet against the ground. A modern facsimile of such a machine is in the collection of the National Museum (pl. 7, a).
