The "horseless carriage," as early automobiles were known, were not themselves an invention "from scratch" but the application of numerous existing technologies into one package. Not all of the patent documents in the Library may have been directly applied to automobiles of the day. Many of them are technologies originally used on wagons, carriages, and bicycles, the nonmotorized precursors to cars and motorcycles, technologies including tires, wheels, wheel hubs, and other "running gear." These, as well as general technologies of the rapidly developing internal combustion engine, are included here as historical background into the invention of the automobile and the earliest applications of it.
