1927 Official Boy Scout Handbook on DVD
The first Official Handbook, subtitled A Handbook of Woodcraft, Scouting, and Life-craft was first published in July 1910. It was written by Ernest Seton and drew greatly on Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys, it included information on the organization of Scouting, signs and signaling, and camping, as well as Scouting games and a description of several Scouting honours. Notably, this book did not place emphasis on first aid, knife and axe use, or map and compass work, as later editions would. Because this edition of was intended solely as a temporary guide until an authoritative handbook could be made, it is now known as the 1910 Original Edition Handbook. The cover art was an illustration by Baden-Powell. There were about 28,000 copies printed.
This DVD is an affordable archive of The Boy Scout Handbook. It is a descendant of Baden-Powell's original handbook, Scouting for Boys, which has been the basis for Scout handbooks in many countries, this is the 1914 version on a Gift Quality DVD.
