Brandreth's cyclopede. Historical artwork of the cyclopede, which was patented in 1829 by Thomas Brandreth from Liverpool, England. It was operated by one or two horses walking on a treadmill, which was couple to the wheels. With the horses trotting a speed of 9 kilometres per hour could be reached. This was considered too slow by the judges of the Rainhill trials, the same competition where Stephenson's 'Rocket' won the first prize. Published in History and progress of the steam engine, England, 1830.
