A 19th Century Tech Bubble

I really enjoy late 19th and early 20th century English literature – not just serious authors like Evelyn Waugh who never go out of print, but also the rivals of Sherlock Holmes. The internet (especially project Gutenberg) has made available many books I have not been able to find in print.

Since I lived in Silicon Valley during the dot-bomb bubble, I always get a kick out of reading Arthur Morrison’s The Affair of the “Avalanche Bicycle & Tyre Co.,Ltd.” Although it was written in 1897, it sounds just like the internet bubble. The story appears in the Dorrington Deed Box, which is now back in print – and available online.
