'Catalogue of the Grenfell Collection of Books on Physical Education in the Board of Education Library' published by the Board of Education

Scope and Content

The books were presented to the Library by Captain F. H. Grenfell, formerly the Board's Staff Inspector of Physical Training, on his retirement in 1934. The Board's successor, the Department for Education, deposited the collection with the Institute of Education in 1992.

The collection consists of books and a few bound volumes of periodicals on physical education published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; a lot of the material is in English, but a substantial proportion is in the various Scandinavian languages, French and German.
