A very good later edition of the 1930's Flicker Series. This being number 1 in this series and titled "Miss Betty Nuthall, Flicker No. 1. Forehand and Backhand Drives". Condition is fantastic for a book that is over 80 years old. Staple rusty (as is common), Front and back cover present and bright. Printed in England showing on bottom. Outer boards are clear but slightly dusty. This book is a variant of the true first edition number 7 of the original series. Dealers stamp on back cover and adverts for Slazengers on front and inside of front and back covers. A wonderful and rare item, and more so in this great condition.

Norman Loudon, who later went on to found Shepperton Film Studios, was at that time experimenting with high speed photography, producing flicker books which he thought could prove an invaluable aid to sportsmen looking to improve their technique by observing the top players in each field in great detail at each stage of their actions. A flicker book is a book that you flip through and by doing so it creates animation. Each book has approximately 100 pages and measures only 2 inches by 3 inches. The book works both forward and backward thus showing the viewer two different ways of best perfecting his or her sport. Bookseller Inventory # 003517
