The renowned American humourist offers four essays, titled "Vittles," "Music," "Art," and "Sport." Dedicated "To R. H. Davis (Not Richard Harding -- The Other One)." "Sport is largely a point of view. A skinny youth who flits forth from a gymnasium attired in the scenario of a union suit, with a design of a winged Welsh rarebit on his chest, and runs many miles at top speed through the crowded marts of trade, is highly spoken of and has medals hung on him. If he flits forth from a hospital somewhat similarly attired, and does the same thing, the case is diagnosed as temporary insanity -- and we drape a strait-jacket on him and send for his folks. Such is the narrow margin that divides Marathon and mania; and it helps to prove that sport is mainly a state of mind." Pictorial brown boards, 148 pages, illustrated. Bumped corners, two small indentations to right corners of top edges of covers, dusty/lightly soiled edges, light general wear. Overall, an attractive copy.
