MEISSNER, Wilhelmine and MEYERS, Elizabeth
Basketball for Girls
NY, A.S. Barnes, (1940). The first volume "for girls" in the ongoing Barnes Sports Library series, which numbered some 20 titles by this date. (Softball and field hockey followed.) Sections include history of the game, catching and passing, shooting, technique and tactics, offense, defense, and officiating, all clearly illustrated with line drawings and diagrams. Owner name and "Russell Sage College" written on the front flyleaf; small number stamp front flyleaf; a near fine copy in a good, chipped dust jacket. Uncommon in the first printing and in jacket (which seems necessary to identify the printing as Barnes indicated later printings on the jacket flap). It seems doubtful that an earlier book on the subject exists. [#034912] $450
