  "Encycleopedia"  "a personal selection of unorthodox, thoughtful
  cycling products from around the world".

  The Bicycle, by Pryor Dodge.  Paris: Flammarion, 1996.  ISBN 2-08013-551-1.
   Distributed in the US by Abbeville Press (same ISBN), $50.  Lavishly
  produced hardback book about the history of the bicycle, intelligently
  written and superbly illustrated.  Considering what you get, it is good
  value--especially as it is available discounted.  (Amazon charge $35.)
  
  Bicycling Japan: A Touring Handbook, by Suzanne Lee.  Carmichael, Calif.:
  Zievid Press, 1991.  ISBN 0-9627458-0-4.  $6.95.  In print (I think).  A
  slim paperback with a lot of information about cycling around Japan.  Aimed
  toward people who are new to Japan, but still of use to those who know it
  other than as cyclists.  Lacks information or tips about where are better
  places to go.
  
  Cycling Japan: A Personal Guide to Exploring Japan by Bicycle, ed. Bryan
  Harrell.  Tokyo & New York: Kodansha International, 1993.  ISBN
  4-7700-1742-1.  2200 yen / US$18.  In print.  A paperback with some tips on
  cycling in Japan, but much more about particular itineraries.  So
  specific--with phone numbers of minshuku (pensions), etc.--that it is
  likely to become dated and should therefore be used with care.
