Isnít there a Wheelman library and someone that can sell copies of the catalog?

Kind regards,

Amazingly enough, 58 members have read my comments, but no one is replying.
Why is no one replying?

Kind regards,

Good evening, Giovanni.

I sent an e-mail note to Bill Smith, the Wheelmen librarian, about this request.

And here is useful information.


Wheelmen library holdings
The library has a wide assortment of bicycle company catalogs, bicycle magazines, and articles through 1918, the clubís main period of interest. These holdings are in one of two formats: paper copy or electronically in PDF format. A list of the holdings can be obtained by e-mail at: wheelmenlibrary@comcast.net

In 2016, the period of interest was expanded to 1932, so the library holdings will be expanding to cover that time period also.

Requesting copies from the library
To request copies of items in the library, please send your request in writing to The Wheelmen Librarian at wheelmenlibrary@comcast.net or to the address listed below. You may telephone the librarian with questions, but please do not call collect. We attempt to process all requests as soon as received, but please be patient as our schedules do get very busy. The current charge for copies is 20Ę per page (subject to change without notice) for items in paper or $5.00 for each item that is in electronic format. Postage will also be charged but is dependent on the size of the order. When making payments, please make checks payable to Bill Smith (the librarian) and NOT to The Wheelmen.

The first Crescent catalog was in 1894. I have an original copy in good condition. I also have the 1896 catalog.

Chris,
You might talk with Bill Smith, the librarian about perhaps making a copy for the Wheelmen Library if it is needed.
