This early guide to life-saving is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. A detailed look at the practice, it will prove of great interest to the present day swimmer and historian of the activity. It contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Extensively illustrated with black and white drawings. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
