|Synopsis||Presented in a manner not hitherto attempted in the literature of the game of bowls, veteran and novice players alike are certain to find interest and instruction within the pages of this book.
A number of leading players, ie past English national and county champions, have given me their views upon phases of flat-green bowls.
Questions arising out of the problems of the game are fully answered in two chapters.
Calls, cries and expressions heard on the green during the progress of match play include some from the days of Mitchell and his pioneers of a century ago.
With all this advice before him, the novice player should be safeguarded against committing many of the technical errors which confront him when he steps into 'the pit' for the first time.
The first edition of this book was published as a hardback by Mills & Boon, London, in 1915. It ran to 184 pages, of which 32 pages comprised the publisher's catalogue, and included 10 plates.Also by George T Burrows:
