Very nice hard-bound collection of 42 issue's of Porter's Spirit of
the Times sports weekly from March 5, 1859 to December 31, 1859. "A
Chronicle of the Turf, Field Sports, Literature and the Stage."
Porter's had the leisure time activities of 19th century Americans
covered. Articles on rowing, chess, draughts, hunting, cricket,
swimming, horse racing, cock fighting, boxing and much more. The
boards and spine have some minor bumping and paper loss at the
corners, but overall the book is in solid condition. The inner pages
are in equally good condition. Some have overall spotting, but there
is minimal edge wear and/or tearing. Very nice.
