First edition. 'The car was a 30 H. P. White Steam - noiseless, running as smoothly as a sledge, provided with a comfortable touring body and luggage-carrier; and, above all, a splendid hill-climber. She seemed positively enjoying flying uphill, and to express her pleasure by a gentle, musical chirping sound, to which she owed her name - the Cricket' (p. 2). The motoring tour focused much on steep inclines, and altitude differences of the points visited during the journey are given as tables.
