The Boys' Book of Sports.
New York: The Century Co., 1917. 422 pp. 8vo. Scarce copy, in very good condition. Lightly edgeworn and scuffed, small soil spot to front board, lettering to spine faded. Very light browning to textblock, minor foxing and soiling to scattered margins, some plates lightly foxed. Slight creasing to corner of some pgs. Otherwise clean, with all original b&w illustrated plates. "In selecting this material...[our] thought was to try and confer upon the average normal boy - which most of them are - a double blessing. 1. A long period of entertainment and delight. 2. A full span of instruction and an inside view upon all the games that each boy plays, or would like to play, if he had the chance." Very Good Cloth (Item ID: 118748)
