Description

Scarce & Historic 1906 Gallaher & Stead Rugby Book: ‘The Complete Rugby Footballer’, iconic volume by the captain & vice-captain of the Original 1905 All Blacks in Europe, seen as one of the most important and influential early coaching & advice tomes on the code. Red boards with gilt spine titles, some marks & inevitable foxing, well worn to edges, text block a little rough & wrinkled to tail only, but entire, fully legible, with all photographic plates present, tape to front blank page as spine loosened. Still a desirable and collectable example of this 115 year old, 364pp Methuen edition.

Hammer Price: £110.00
