COBB, Humphrey H. Figure Skating in the English Style. London, Eveleigh Nash, 1913.

8vo. Original red cloth with rounded edges, spine lettered in gilt, author's portrait, skating, gilt-stamped onto front cover, red edges; pp. 253, plates after photographs, line diagrams in the text; spine a little faded, otherwise a very good copy of an unusual title.
First edition. A technical handbook for figure skaters. What distinguished English from other nationalities' skating is probably due to the fundamental difference of frozen water in different countries.
