A poor copy of this early work on ice-skating, "founded on certain principles deduced from many years experience: by which that noble exercise is now reduced to an art". This copy lacks the original title and has been bound into plain cloth wrappers which are worn and soiled. Pages iii-xiv (2) 1-64. + 3 plates. Hand drawn replacement title page state "abt. 1768", but this is the 1780 reprint. Pages worn to edges, plates with minor repairs. Some minor contemporary ink to a few pages.
