In the late 1920's Norman Loudon, who later went on to found Shepperton Film Studios, was experimenting with high speed photography, producing flicker books which he thought could prove an invaluable aid to sportsmen looking to improve their technique by observing the top players in each field in great detail at each stage of their actions.
1st editions. 2x3", 100pp. This set comprises numbers 1, 2 & 3 of the 'Flicker: Teach the Game - First series' each depicting Don Bradman demonstrating two shots, one running each way through the book. No. 1 "On Drive & Off Drive", No. 2 " Square Cut & Late Cut" and No. 3 "Leg Glance & Pull" All internally very good, clean and bright. In the original pink card covers, No. 2 the brightest with small ink initials above title, 1 and 3 slightly faded with minor spotting to all. Overall a very good , barely 'flicked' set of this scarce collection. [Padwick, 693, 7360]
