This looks like one amazing book. Unfortunately it was pressed in 1973 so the chances of me getting my greasy mitts on one is like, well, slim to none.
Excerpt from this, the 1973 first edition.
This year marks the one hundredth anniversary of the two machines that have had a profound influence on us. It was roughly in 1872 that color lithography, which made colorful pictorial posters possible, came into popular use; it was also about 1872 that the modern bicycle evolved. It is the coincidence of these two inventions—the modern bicycle and the modern poster—converging and maturing at about the same time, that interested me. It is this founding and parallel growth, as evidenced by the bicycle posters, that this book illustrates.”
