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 edition. 2x3", 100pp. This volume number 2 of the 'Flicker: Teach the Game - First series' depicting Don Bradman demonstrating two shots, "Square Cut & Late Cut", one running each way through the book. Internally very good, clean and bright with very slightly bumped corners. In the original slightly tanned pink wraps, slightly rubbed with small staple stain. Bookseller's advert to lower. A very good volume of this scarce barely 'flicked' book. [Padwick 693, 7360]
