Lot 563.  1920s-30s Spalding Guides and Posters on Basketball, Volleyball and Baseball for Women.

Given the instructions these guides provide, the authors certainly didn’t anticipate the WBA. Each guide has at least 50 pages, and as many as 70. A 1937 publication, from Spalding’s “Athletic Activities for Women and Girls” series, provides instructions for “Outdoor Baseball” and “Volley Ball for Girls and Women.” Vg. In a 3.5” x 4.5” format, a 64-page Spalding supplement to the “Official Outdoor Baseball Guide for Girls and Women” presents “Outdoor Baseball Rules for Girls and Women,” ex-m. A 1923 publication, “Track and Field Athletics for Girls: Instructions for Acquiring Correct Form,” provides 154 pages of information and instruction; vg with a 3” spine split. This publication covers a wide range of track and field events. Four posters of various sizes accompany these publications: “Basketball Technique” (2, one approximately 10” x 13”, and the other, which is illustrated with photos of girls playing basketball, 13” x 26”); “Volley Ball for Girls and Women,” 14.5” x 18”, and “Outdoor Baseball for Girls Rules Chart,” 19.5” x 23.5.” All of these posters have multiple folds, and except for the baseball poster, all have multiple tears along the folds.
