Two volumes. Both green faux leather paper covers. No. 1 is titled 'Head Balancing. Single - Head-to-Head- Trapeze', 8 pages; Volume 2 is titled 'Hand Balancing. Single - Hand-to-Hand - Group', 88 pages. Book No. 2 is particularly interesting as it is a 'Presentation Copy' with many signatures (and each dated)on the front end papers (end papers have a glossy finish) including Frank Krueger, Capt. Eddie Allen, Bob Orth, William Matthews, Otis Caldwell, Martha Angell, Ruby Ring, and many others. In addition, there are numerous signatures and dates scattered throughout that are adjacent to various photos of those who posed for this 1945 edition. It appears this copy traveled with the previous owner throughout the U.S. and signatures gotten from those gymnasts posing. This book (No. 2) is unusual and with the autographs it it elevated to extremely rare and valuable. Each signature is different with different ink and different dates and each signature adjacent to or on a particular photo. A prime piece of ephemora for the collector of esoteric gymnastic history. More photos by request. Bookseller Inventory #
