Description

Scarce 1892 Rugby Book: 1st edition of the Rev F Marshall’s seminal work Football: The Rugby Union Game, regarded as the pioneering literary effort on the oval code. Spine a little loose in and out with slim sellotaping, and minor loss to very top of spine, but main text block tight and strong with minimal foxing and brightly gilded dark blue boards. Some edge and corning bumping. Sought-after volume for its 128 years, very worthy despite faults

Hammer Price: £70.00
