Posted on Monday, April 19th, 2021 by John Wood
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.
