This is a single-volume reprint of Motor Cycle Reminiscences and Further Motor Cycle Reminiscences, originally published circa 1920-30s. Ixion, a pen name for Cannon B.H. Davies, wrote for The Motor Cycle, a leading bike journal that ran from 1903 until 1983. He was “one of the first motor cyclists when the general public regarded the pioneers as incomprehensible lunatics, and no wonder, if one reads the problems they had to overcome. In the early days even the pedal cycle tended to be faster, and the uplift beneath early motor cycling must have been equivalent to a religion, or they would never have borne its manifold disagreeable as they did.” Both volumes are reprinted in full, with original adverts intact. (case) Dust jacket present. First Edition.
