The bellecycle: a drama of aesthetic athletics being the vacation games and exercises of Anne Eugenia Morgan, Professor of Philosophy in Wellesley College

Wellesley, Mass. Alfred Mudge and Son, Printers, 1897. Square 12mo, pp. 31, [1]; three full-page black and white photographs of individuals engaging in the game of bellecycle, and a photo vignette; near fine in green wrappers with upper wrapper printed in black, pencil scribbling on one page and two spots of glued paper residue on the rear wrapper. The first section explains how to play the game of bellecycle, including the equipment needed, and the next section explains exercises one can do to gain skill in the game of bellecycle. Anne Morgan was a professor at Wellesley College, appointed to her professorship in 1878. She was a learned classical scholar and taught Greek and Latin at Vassar and Oberlin. She invented the game bellecycle as a non-violent form of exercise for people of all ages to play (Wikipedia, Anne Eugenia Morgan). In her final section in this publication, Morgan explains bellecycle drawing on color theory, aesthetics, and the Greek philosophy of holistic exercise. For Morgan, exercise led to beauty, not just health. Item #53585
