Finally Arrived, "The Vintage Bicycle" Book

Any one else have a copy ? It was worth the wait. Left Germany on Oct. 20, 2020 and arrived today, after sitting in the USPS , New Jersey facility , since Dec. 5. Great book for the vintage cyclist. KB.

I've got "The Competition Bicycle" and "The Golden Age of Handbuilt Bicycles", though. That's enough big books taking up space.
I keep meaning to browse through them again, though. Lots of cool stuff!

This book was a godsend for me https://www.topwritersreview.com/reviews/tutorme/ here's a review of the service that helped me sort out the structure of my work and fix mistakes. I'm not good at writing, so I asked for help, and I'd like to prepare my work properly.

I have the Schwinn history book, No Hands and a book about the history of Raleigh.

I should get the official Masi history book, been too cheap.

Over the decades I have spent $$ on sailboat design and America’s Cup history books.

Lines - the sailboats of Sparkman & Stephens
Was a strategic purchase- out of print and I could not afford it today.
the Schwinn book has appreciated also.
all that could fall back to earth with a reprint!

speedbicycles.ch should author a book, does solid photography.
