Regular price $500.00 Sale

Born in Kingston on December 6, 1866, George Alfred Meagher is credited as the man who established ice hockey in Europe. He also had a successful figure skating career, skating professionally in shows, learning barrel jumping and even performing before Queen Victoria. The photos in the book are of George himself in his figure skating costume. Both hockey and figure skating owe George a great debt for the time and effort he took to share his passion, both on the ice and in books such as this. Chapter headings include: skates, skating in England, fundamental movements, fancy figures, hockey on the ice, laws of hockey in Quebec, laws of hockey in Ontario, etc. Intro by the Earl of Derby. Dedicated to the Countess of Minto, "the most graceful lady skater in the world."
