viiipp. + 215pp. Original green beveled boards stamped in gilt. Top corners bumped. Extremities lightly rubbed. Ownership inscriptions on the front free endpaper and next blank prelim. Quite a clean copy. A fictional attempt to motivate Victorians to get involved in physical fitness. Notable for its positive reference to women in sports on page 189-91, the discussion centering on whether or not women are silly geese or whether they are in fact human. Since they are in fact human and not silly geese (as most men of the day admittedly thought according to the author), they should thus be involved in gymnastics. Size: 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall
