Books and Publications
A display of rowing books and publications and a catalogue of where they can be found.
- Pulling Through - The Story of the King's Cup by Dr Bruce Coe. This book by Bruce Coe tells the fascinating story behind the winning of the 1919 King’s Cup by the Australian Imperial Forces No. 1 crew. You can read more about the book and order it online.
- The Complete Oarsman by R C Lehmann, published by Methuen & Co London 1908. This book contains a chapter on rowing styles in other countries which largely concentrates on New South Wales. But on more interest is a chapter written by Australian born Frederick Kelly on sculling. The book can be found in the National Library of Australia and in the Guerin collection.
- The Australian Oarsman, a proposed monthly record published by J W Shaw in May 1926. This was a superbly produced newsletter for its day and obviously did not survive long. This May 1926 edition is the only one known to the publisher of this website. Follow this link to view a copy of it.
