This intention was fulfilled when the second edition appeared in the following year- but since then, owing to differences of opinion, by no means of an unfriendly nature, between myself and my co-authors, it has been impossible for me to make any additions or alterations.When Dr.

Hoek brought out his German book on the subject, entitled Der Schilauf, it was arranged between us that he should use as much of my matter as seemed good to him, whilst his matter should be at my disposal for any subsequent editions of Ski-Running which might appear.

This permission he has been kind enough to transfer to the present work.The book which I am now issuing is thus to some extent based on Der Schilauf, which, in its turn, is to some extent based on Ski-Running.

The chapter on outfit contains a great deal of information as to the best kind of wood for ski.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
