In the late 1899’s and early 29th century, The American Sports Publishing Co. put out dozens of booklets as part of Spalding’s Sports Library. — everything from lawn tennis, bowling, how to play 3rd base, to almanacs and rule books. This “How to Wrestle,” published in 1905, features a drawing of one of the biggest stars of the day, George Hackenschmidt, performing a wrestler’s bridge on the cover. Frederick R. Toombs also authored athletic guides for the Spalding’s Sports Library on squash and ice hockey.
