With Roller Coasters (SomethinOdd blog)

The Automobilist Abroad
by Milburg Francisco Mansfield,
Illustrated by Blanche McManus

The control of a restive horse, a cranky boat,
or even a trolley-car on rails
is difficult enough for the inexperienced,
and there are many who would quail
before making the attempt;
but to the novice
in charge of an automobile,
some serious damage
is likely enough to occur
within an incredibly short space of time,
particularly if he does not
take into account
the tremendous force and power
which he controls
merely by the moving of a tiny lever,
or by the depressing of a pedal.

Any one interested in automobiles
should know something of
the literature of the subject,
which, during the last decade,
has already become formidable.

In English
the literature of the automobile
begins with Mr. Worby Beaumont's
Cantor Lectures (1895),
and the pamphlet by Mr. R. Jenkins on
"Power Locomotion on the Highways,"
published in 1896.
