Descripción

1912. First edition. Illustrated wraps, 8vo. measuring 4.5 by 7 inches. 59pp. with 24 plates of photographic illustrations featuring "Elbows" McFadden demonstrating key defensive moves, plus 20 pages of publisher ads. Very good. Rubbing to wraps, especially to spine, and bending to bottom corner of rear wrap. Internally very clean and bright. Housed in protective mylar. Active from 1894 to 1908, McFadden garnered fame for his defensive boxing tactics, earning himself the nickname "Elbows" because he used his knobby joints as defense and weapon. Post career, Elbows McFadden ran his own boxing gym in New York and passed on his skills to individuals of all sizes and ages. Herein he demonstrates some of the swings and blocks that made him a formidable lightweight boxer in the ring. Digital images available upon request. N° de ref. de la librería z08210
