"The Text Book of Boxing" is one of the most important boxing books of all time. First published in 1914 and written by England's finest fighter, "The Text Book of Boxing" is a master class in the manly art of pugilism. This boxing manual contains over 40 photographs and detailed instructions on the proper execution of boxing techniques for both offense and defense. ***** This deluxe edition contains a newspaper report of the 1909 fight between Jim Driscoll and Abe Attell. ***** "Peerless" Jim Driscoll was born in Cardiff, Wales in 1881 and began his boxing career in 1901. He is considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound fighter of all time. During his illustrious boxing career, he earned the title of featherweight champion of the world and won the coveted Lonsdale Belt. ***** "Driscoll was the king of all boxers. From Driscoll, by a close study of his ways, I learned the wisdom of always leading with the left hand; he taught me much about stance, and how to time my blows so that they would have all the weight of my body behind them." Georges Carpentier.
