New York: Richard K. Fox, 1899. First edition. Small stapled paperwraps measuring approximately 3 x 4.25" with cover serving as title page. 151 pages plus ads. Illustrated with drawings and inserted full-page black-and-white photographs, 6 of boxers and one of the compiler, Sam Austin. Statistics for various the sports make up the first 55 pages but the bulk of the book is reserved for "Pugilistic Records" along with several pages of "Prize Ring Rules." Boxers pictured are Bob Fitzsimmons, Tom Sharkey, Charles (Kid) McCoy, George (Kid) Lavigne, Ben Jordan, and George Dixon (1870-1908) -- a Canadian professional boxer and the first black athlete to win a world championship in any sport. Good at best with small chips to cover edges, front cover torn affecting "Pugilistic Records" in subtitle, and only remnants of the spine remaining, but interior near fine.
