London: Sports & Sportsmen Ltd.,, [1935]. Folio (386 × 264 mm). Original red full morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, rules to boards gilt and blind, titles gilt to front board, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers with red cloth strips to hinges, all edges gilt. Illustrations to plates and in the text throughout. Tips nicked, a few small marks and minor scratches to covers, some light spots to end leaves; excellent condition. Limited edition; number 25 of 1,000 copies. A very handsome copy of this sporting compendium celebrating "the remarkable growth of athletic games and sports since the Great War. If an increase in leisure hours has brought with it the phenomenon of huge stadiums full with the weekly millions who watch, it must be at least some consolation to those who love games for their own sake that more people than ever are playing with a ball of some shape or size." (Introduction).
