Excerpt from Polo Past and Present The present work is the result of several years' preparation, and of generous co-operation on the part of many men interested in the game. For its form and the opinions expressed, I am, of course, entirely responsible. Polo: Past and Present covers very much ground not occupied by existing books on the game, and is written from a somewhat different point of view. In the chapter on ancient polo, I have gone back to the authorities so far as they were known to me, and have made an endeavour to recover from the past the rules and methods of the game.
