Subject: [CR]The Bicycle by R John Way

I was just given a book titled "The Bicycle" by R John Way. Published and printed in the UK, copyright 1973. The book takes a bit of a generic approach, covering a little of everything from history (the ordinary, etc.) to gear and accessories to fitness to racing. What is interesting is that the book is also illustrated by the author. The illustrations include some very Rebour-esque drawings. In particular are very cool illustrations of a Campy Record crankset (shown with arm and dust cover extraction tools), and an exploded view of a Cinelli Bivalent hub system. I haven't read the book yet, so I have no Idea what the text is like, but the art is pretty cool.

Is anyone familiar with this book?
