First edition. Read was the first professional squash champion of Britain, holding the title 1920-9. He was also British champion in Rackets, 1925-9, and Lawn Tennis 1921-8. An attractive book, and decidedly uncommon in the jacket.

Octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to spine, crossed rackets gilt to the front board within single fillet blind label. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece and 19 other plates, sketches to the text. Very mild sunning of the spine, endpapers lightly browned, else very good indeed in slightly soiled pictorial jacket, some clean splits without loss to the edges, small chip at the head of the spine costing to author’s initials. An excellent copy.
