Item details

'Leisure is a prized possession which few of us ever have in excess. Once we have learned to use it, we are the richer for the knowledge.'

The Modern World Book of Hobbies is a collectible vintage hobby book from the 1950's. Inside you will find illustrations, photographs and information about a variety of hobbies from 'chemistry as a pastime' to 'how to build and fly kites.' Other interesting hobbies include; 'The sky at night,' 'Conjuring' and 'The craft of handweaving.' The book is 160 pages long and was published by Sampson Low, Marston & Co LTD.

Condition: Pretty good considering it's age. The front cover is rather worn around the edges and the inside pages are tanned in places with a few marks here and there.

Measurements: 270mm x 210mm x 20mm / 10.6 inches x 8.2 inches x 0.7 inches
