Details About the Original Edition
Richard's excellent 220-page hard-bound book covers all the models from the 1911 prototype to the last 1931 Streamline "KJ" model. Schultz emphasizes the Detroit-built models (1912-1917) before the Henderson Brothers sold the business to Ignatz Schwinn.
The book is profusely illustrated with original documents - in fact, the old Henderson factory literature and advertisments vastly outnumbers the author's text. But don't treat this as another coffee-table book - Schultz has done a tremendous amount of solid research.
Schultz offers a surpising portrait of Ignatz Schwinn, the ruthless businessman: with Tom Henderson on his knees, Schwinn paying Tom his asking price for the Henderson Co.; Schwinn giving both Tom and younger brother Will high-paying jobs with Excelsior; Schwinn forgiving Tom's debts when Tom quits and goes into the export business for himself; Schwinn conveniently forgetting the non-compete contract clause when Will starts Ace Motor Co.
