Oliver Optic’s Work And Win

Yesterday, a rowing book arrived in the mail. It is not a new book on rowing, and to be honest, it is maybe not that much of a rowing book either. The book is Work and Win by Oliver Optic (William Taylor Adams 1822-1897). What caught my eye was the cover of the book, a boy in a single scull. This book was first published in 1865 or 1866; my copy is of a much later date, probably mid-1900. I have added it to my entry of 9 August, 2009, where I posted a list of juvenile books with rowing as a minor or major theme.
