    1887 N77 Duke "Gymnastic Exercises" Blue & Brown Captions Collection (24). The 1880's version of a beauty pageant is found in this scarce series of 25 subjects titled "Gymnastic Exercises." The imagery hardly reflects the athletic appeal the title suggests but we think smokers quickly over came any disappointment. The tantalizing edition is available with captions printed in either blue or brown ink. The illustrations are colorful and finely detailed. Missing Backward Knee Swing and Swing And Snap Up for a complete set of 25 titles. Includes: N77 Duke "Gymnastic Exercises" Brown Captions (17) - Back Wheel (2), Double Arm Swing, Dumb Bells, Fencing, Forward Wheel Swing, Giant Swing, Hanging By Toes, Leg Swing, Outside Hand Vault, Parallel Bar/Handspring, Parallel Bar/Walking, Rope Walking, Saddle Vaulting, Slanting Ladder, The Foot Hang Trapeze-Flying Jump; N77 Duke "Gymnastic Exercises" Blue Captions (7) - Flying Rings-Swinging Exercise, Flying Trapeze Leg Fly, Indian Clubs, Parallel Bar/Vaulting, Roll Over, Rope Climbing, Slow Pull Up. Grades 46% VG to EX, 54% lesser (a couple miscut).
