TRUE ADVENTURE. "As a centennial tribute to Thomas Steens, we are publishing this abridged version. The original two volume work was published in 1887. We have carefully sifted through the nearly 1000 pages of original text and have chosen passages that we hope will give you the most accurate feel for the Thomas Stevens adventure. For many 19th century readers, it was the artwork, the beautifully detailed engravings by W. C. Rogers and others, that brought the story to life. The engravings in this edition are reprodced to the exact size that they appeared in the original work. " Most, well overhalf, of the pages have a b/w engraving, with caption . 5-page Itinerary giving the name and date of each sleeping-point on the bicycle tour around the world . Stevens' bicycle was a 50" high-wheeler. .
