Published by the British Olympic Council and printed by Spottiswoode & Co., the booklet, 23 pages, 6.5 x 9.75, contains rules and regulations for the aforementioned sports, in addition to several amusing illustrations for the diving events. The program lists sections for 100 meters, 400 meters, 1,500 meters, high diving, fancy diving, 200 meters team race (teams of four), 200 meters breaststroke, 100 meters backstroke, and water polo (teams of seven). In very good condition, with the front and back covers detached and fragile, with the interior of the front cover bearing an affixed "The British Olympic Association" bookplate, which has produced a block of toning to the title page.
