Patent Auto-Propelling Cantering Horses

Smith, Stephen W., New York. Patent Auto-Propelling Cantering Horses....[cover title]. NY: Wynkoop & Hallenbeck, n.d. [mid-1860s]. 8p, several ills. Self wrs. Very worn; mended tears. ** A fragile and scarce retail advertising pamphlet for children's 3-wheeled horses (with instructions on how to set them up); also rocking horses, spring horses, wagons, baby tenders, baby carriages, and invalid chairs. The cantering horses, which were propelled by pedals and guided by reins, were "a good mode of training for equestrianism" for both boys and girls. (Item ID: 14004)
