Avon The One and Only Yo-Yo Book
Exhibit #2551
OwnerRick Brough

"The One and Only Yo-Yo Book" by George Malko. A portion of the book, in a different form, appeared originally in Malko's 10 page magazine article titled, "Will there ever be another yo-yo champ". The article was published in Lithopinion during the summer of 1970. Mr. Malko's research and work on the article and book actually extends back to July 1966. The book itself is a fascinating, personal look into the history of yo-yo, beginning with Pedro Flores in the late 20s and on through the decades with Donald F. Duncan, Sr.. It basically ends with Don Duncan, Jr. mentioning his patent on a new model he called the Pro-Yo. There are many unique, yo-yo-related photographs and pictures throughout the book. Two appendices are devoted to lists of basic yo-yo tricks by name. The last appendix is an honor roll of the original 42 Filipino yo-yo demonstrators that helped popularize the toy in America.
