Detailed Product Description
New York, not dated - ca. 1914, 3rd revised US 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, repaired spine and former owner's name, notes, underlines and ephemera included. Near 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 - same as the 1913 UK edition, but without the advertisements.

Book also contains former owner W. L. Tressler's inscription (1919) on front end paper. It also contains newspaper clippings on various ski competitions and an article announcing [University of Wisconsin] fraternity pledges, along with a program and a ticket to the Fourth Annual Ice Carnival on Lake Mendota in 1920. Tressler appears to have worked for the university.
