The prime object of this book is to induce and to teach boys and girls to spend their hours out of school in such a manner, as to gain innocent enjoyment while they promote their own health and bodily strength. The author has never lost sight of this object, considering it to be what properly belongs to a Book of Sports. He hopes that several of the games will be found to the knowledge of many scientific facts.
