First published in 1895, this classic by Frances Willard provides a fascinating insight into the explosion in popularity of the bicycle at the turn of the century, and explores the new freedom it offered women in the West. "A Wheel within a Wheel" is highly recommended for those with an interest in the history of the bicycle, and it is not to be missed by collectors of allied literature. Frances Willard Facts (September 28, 1839 - February 7, 1898) was an American educator, temperance activist, reformer, suffragist, and speaker. She headed the Women's Christian Temperance Union from 1879-1898, and was both the first dead of woman at Northwestern University and the first woman represented in statuary Hall, U.S. Capitol Building. Other notable works by this author include: "How to Win: A Book for Girls" (1886), and "Woman in the Pulpit" (1888). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the History of the Bicycle.
