Copyrighted in 1932, these small books allow a person today to see the swings of three famous early 20th century golfers.  Thumbing the pages in rapid succession will reveal the swing used by either Tommy Armour, Johnny Farrell, or Leo Diegel to demonstrate how to hit a particular shot.  This set includes “The Grip, The Driver, Long Iron, The Niblick, and The Approach”. 

The viewer can stop thumbing the pages in order to stop the swing at any point and read the caption at the bottom of each page.  All the pages are tight and the books work well.  A small portion on the upper left hand corner of “The Grip” booklet has been loft, apparently the cover suffered a small burn (likely from a cigarette) sometime in days past. This minor flaw aside, these booklets are in great condition!
