"Years ago the Editor of this work felt the want of a systematic treatise on Billiards. Books there were, giving instructions on various points, but none, so far as he could discover, harmonising the whole into a system. The Editor refrained from undertaking such a book, feeling that he had not a sufficiently intimate knowledge of the game. Knowing, however, that Mr. Bennett was a very successful teacher of Billiards, the Editor propounded his scheme to him; and the result of their joint labours will be found in the following pages". (From the editor's preface). The editor, 'Cavendish', was the pseudonym of Henry Jones. Chapters include:- Historical; Billiard records; The table; The implements; Preliminary instructions; Losing-hazards; Winning-hazards; Cannons; Incline and side; Stab and screw; Following and fine strokes; Breaks; Miscellaneous strokes; Safety.
