'The Sportfolio' - Portraits and Biographies of Heroes and Heroines of Sport & Pastime.

A complete bound book of 140 pages with portraits and biographies of leading sportsmen & women of the 1890's. Published by George Newnes Ltd, London, 8, 9, 10, 11, Southampton Street, and Exeter Street, Strand, London, W.C. The sports included, with the amount of pages dedicated to that particular sport in brackets, are Athletics (15), Billiards (6), Chess (6), Cricket (13), Cycling (34), Football (38), Golf (18), Lawn Tennis (4), Sculling (4) and Skating (2). Some of the famous names in the publication include C.B. Fry, W.G. Grace, Right Hon. A.J. Balfour, John Ball and J.H. Taylor.
This is a wonderful book, and as sad as it may seem, lends itself to having the pages taken out and framed. This would then make a great wall display with the black and white images of the people with a small write up of their lives.
Very Good
