The Young England Library: The Road to Manhood

£112.00

Product description

There is some shelf ware to this book as a result of its age. There is a pencil inscription on the inside of the book's cover, which suggests that the book was given as a Christmas present in 1909.

This book from The Young England Library served to provide young men with information and instruction that they might need on "the road to manhood". Such instruction includes how to make games, the merits of volunteering, a list of recommended classics to read throughout the winter months, and how to properly play various sports such as association football, rugby, cricket, and hockey. The writings of the book are accompanied by charming illustrations, both in colour and in black and white (see photos).
