by Jeremy Taylor

A charmingly illustrated book that covers the history of swimming and swimming strokes, and some of the more bizarre early competitions and challenges.
The stars, international and Egyptian, are introduced with their records. Throughout, small figures performing each of the four strokes swim across the book's pages which when flicked in succession provide a moving illustration of each style.
