Description

1921/1925 pair of fine Rugby Books (2): Classic Vintage Rugby Volumes: 'Rugby Football Up to Date', full of the spirit of the day and of 'old rugger': EHD Sewell and others' immediate post-WW1 thoughts on rugby of the past and future in this hefty hard backed 368pp tome with attractive embossed board cover. Marked and a little frayed to top of spine, foxed but entire, intriguing and informative. Good; and 'Football: The Rugby Union Game', the third and final edition of the Rev Marshall's original 1892 work, updated in 1925 with Leonard Toswill. Good crisp blue hardback with bold black titles, firmly bound, foxing confined to endpapers and edges of text block. All in all, a VG copy of this seminal volume
