Price: $999.00


Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
London, 1913, 3rd revised UK edition. 286 pp, 59 b/w photographs by K. Delap and 46 figures in text. Original pictorial cloth hardcover. The usual age-related wear for a book this age, but a fine copy. Fine condition.

The alterations and additions to this book in its present form are due partly to fresh practical experience; partly to adverse criticism of which I now see the justice; and partly, as I freely admit, to the picking of other people's brains. - From the revised edition preface.

The revised edition has a separate chapter on braking and includes a chapter on How to Run Across Country as well as an appendix and several pages of advertisements.

Contents:
  • Introductory - The Englishman as a Ski-runner
  • Equipment
  • Management of the Skis
    • On the Level and Uphill
    • General Principles of Steering, &c.
    • Straight-running
    • Braking
    • The Stemming Turn
    • The Telemark Swing
    • The Christiana Swing
    • Jumping Round
    • Skating
  • Jumping
  • How to Run Across Country
  • Appendix
    • How to Practise
