John Jay Memorial Issue
Winter Sport Of Skeeing by
is the first North American book in English on the sport, the second
oldest in the world. Published in Portland, Maine in 1905, and written
by a cabinet maker turned ski maker. It captures abundantly the charm
and nostalgia of the earliest days of North American skiing. The book
is an exact reprint of the original with an added introduction and an
afterword with the story of Theodore Johnson. There are illustrations
of early ski technique and some of the first ski photographs taken in
the U.S. There are also ample illustrations of theskis and ski equipment
that Johnson was selling. The book is a time machine back to 1900 when
skiing was an infant sport. Limited quantity.
