Printing Details

First edition, hardback, bound in the original yellow cloth with swimmer printed design to upper board. 19 × 12.5cm, 115p + ads.

An Edwardian book on swimming by a British champion swimmer. The book starts with the basics of swimming before moving on to matters such as "swimming like a dog", water tricks (including smoking underwater), life saving, and long-distance swimming. Illustrated with black & white drawings.

Condition

The yellow boards are grubby with a faded patch to the front board. The pages tanned and the inner binding weak but still holding. However, still a fascinating book.
