Fascinating hard-bound collection of 52 New York Clipper sports
weekly magazine issues from April 26, 1856 to April 18, 1857. The New
York Clipper covered all manner of sports in its day. Extensive
coverage of rowing, including ivy league rivals Harvard and Yale,
cricket, swimming, horse racing, cock fighting, boxing and much more.
This hard bound edition contains a very early drawing of a baseball
field that charts the positions and the rules of the game. There is
also a great section that illustrates swimming fundamentals. The
boards show extensive wear and the spine is almost completely
disintegrated. The inner pages, however, look great with only edge
wear. Great woodcut illustrations throughout and a hand colored print
of harness race horse Flora Temple.
