In 1892 he succeeded Donaldson as coach of the famous 'Eton Eight' and in the following year replaced the Eight's previously characteristic short, sharp stoke with a much longer draw on a sliding seat. He presented his ideas (and much else) n the standard work 'Elements of Rowing' (Eton, 1913). Lyte's standard history was first published in 1875 and successively updated and re-issued in 1889 and 1899. A magnificent copy in virtually fine state.
