The thing about books is that they’re not very much good when they’re closed and wedged into a shelf. At the same time, no sensible curator would let you put your grubby little mitts on a 250-year-old treasure.

In “Cycling,” for instance, you can see strange inventions of yore like a bicycle that uses a crankshaft and bevel gears rather than a chain, and another that features oddly asymmetrical wheels. You can also see things like old designs for saddles.

Technology” provides helpful diagrams of early war-making machines, production machinery and scientific inventions:
