Modern Lawn Tennis - Illustrated by Explanatory Diagrams and Action Photographs taken expressly for this Work. - Pembroke Arnold Vaile 1904 - William Heinemann, London - First Edition A near fine copy of a comprehensive work by Pembroke Arnold Vaile, an attorney who wrote what for years were considered the authoritative texts on golf and tennis. Brilliantly illustrated with 29 full page photographic plates taken by George W. Beldam, a renowned sports photographer .

This copy is cleaner than a set of whites at Wimbledon in 1904, although as one can see from the image of Mr. Vaile ‘
playing a smash’, the fashion for black knee-length socks and black belt is, for better or worse, no longer fashionable.
  pp. xvi 224.   Condition: A near fine copy, with a little rubbing to spine ends, and minor soiling to block, interior fine.   Ref: 103874   Price: HK$ 1,400
