I've never mentioned a hobby-horse in any of my books and I'm not sure I ever will. I'm not even sure I can recall the mention of such a contraption in the 1000+ Regency romances I've read over the years. Still, this gave me a chuckle when I stumbled across it in the 1819 edition of Ackermann's Repository.
I'm not going to type out the description for this plate, but the clipping below should be readable. Interesting stuff.
*To see this article in its natural setting, check out Ackermann's Repository, February 1819, p. 109.
