HEINRICH, Fritz. Manual for Ski-Babies. Oxford, OUP for the National Union of Students, 1935.

Small 8vo. Original cloth, lettered and decorated in blue, with the rarely seen illustrated dust-wrappers, not price-clipped; pp. x, 94, [2], 35 photographic images on 4 leaves at the end, photographic illustration to title-page, illustrations after drawings in the text; wrappers a little spotted and with minor loss at head and tail of spine, cloth minimally spotted in palces, otherwise very good, early ownership inscription to front fly-leaf.
First edition of an uncommon early primer on skiing. The preface is dated Vienna, October 1935 and the author acknowledges his wife for the drawings used in the book. 'I have avoided posed photographs, which often give a wrong representation of the real movement. All these photographs were taken in action' explains Heinrich in the preface.
