Newmarch, Olive M.; Elsie A. Crouch, photog.  Skipping manual. London: A. Brown & Son, 1930. 12mo (18.9 cm, 7.5"). ix, 74, [2 (publisher's adv.)] pp.; illus.
$150.00

A physical education manual for one of the "foremost exercises for promoting health" — skipping rope! Olive M. Newmarch's guide for jumping rope covers techniques for basic skipping, dancing steps, skipping with a partner, and more. Many => photographs and diagrams illustrate the skipping moves described by Newmarch.
        This is the second edition, following the first of 1924 and preceding the third and last of 1942.. WorldCat could not locate any institutional copies in the U.S. of this edition, only one (Miami of Ohio) of the first, and none of the third. The total number of institutional copies worldwide of all editions is very, very small.

Publisher's red cloth with black lettering to spine and front board. In original cream paper dust jacket featuring a photograph of a young girl preparing to jump rope; age-toned and foxed, water-staining to edges, chipping at extremities, tears at spine-head and top rear edge. Foxing to endpapers, minor gutter cracks.  (40381)   Please RESHELVE This.
