Condition: See description


New York: Cupples & Leon Company, 1910. Hardcover. Small 8vo. Tan cloth with gilt lettering and red, white and black pictorial stamping. 305pp, (9pp ads). Frontispiece, 5 full-page plates. Good plus. Faint edgewear; discreet ex-library with NO spine marking and very few and mostly-removed markings. A tight, decent attractive first edition of the second title in the short-lived "College Sports Series," which issued six titles between 1910 and 1913.
