Excerpt from The Game of Bowling on the Green, or Lawn Bowls

From the above derivations one can readily see how closely allied are the words ball and bowl, and how easy it is to change the game of ball to that of bowls, the one more or less in the air, the other on the ground.

From the times Of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians up to the present day the game Of bowls has undergone many changes, and it remains to» be seen in the future what further changes may be wrought.

Space will not permit Of going into details as to how the game is played in the various countries who play it as this book is intended to give the reader an idea of the game as played to - day.

Scotland is largely responsible for bringing the game to its present state Of perfection, and nowhere to-day are the greens SO perfect and the game played SO scientifically as there.

The rules adopted for playing the game in England, Wales, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, West Indies, Canada are all based on those of the Scottish Bowling Associa tion.
