Friedländer, Hamburg, 1908. 3 loose parts, each ca. 86 x 68 cm. Lith. no. 4310.

Sl. worn and toned along folding lines, some edges brittle, reinf. on verso. *Nick Kaufmann was the first cyclist to organize an unofficial "world championship" in artistic cycling in 1888. After his own cycling career, the Swiss-American became an impressario who managed several troupes to perform wonderful bicycle acts, including an all-girl group called the Kaufmann's Cycling Beauties, as seen here.
