    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Score! Sandow & "Strangler" Lewis!

    I just managed to score a book on my wish list.


    Wrestling - Part Two, by Sandow, Billy & Lewis, Ed "strangler"

    I've seen originals of this series going for hundreds of dollars. More than I'm willing to pay for my republishing hobby. But not this one. I got it for a comparative song!

    'Course, not I have to wait another 3 years to get Part One at a reasonable price. :)

    Expect to see this title shuffled into the repub list near the top of the file!

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    As far as I can tell, this "series" of books is hawking a system of "Physical Culture" of which wrestling is an important element - which is where Ed Lewis comes in. :)

    I've just managed to score a copy of Arturo Bonafont's reverse grip cane manual, I'm going to have to see about getting that reproduced. Time to find someone who can read Spanish...

    Really?!?!

    That's been on my wish list FOREVER!

    I've been wanting to repub it, in it's original Spanish glory (followed by an English translation).

    Because I don't actually read Spanish myself, I'd have to get someone else to do that part.

    Maybe we can work a deal for photocopies. (crosses fingers)

    Yeah, I got it on Ebay for 70 bucks, which I reckon is probably a decent price given that it's pretty damn rare and one seems to come up for sale about once every two years. As a bonus it's also signed by Bonafont's son, who plays the aggressor in the book.

    I haven't actually got my hands on it yet, I'm in the UK and it's being sent to my girlfriend's house in the US, who will bring it over when she comes to visit me next week.

    I would definitely like to make this available to a wider audience so I will be in touch. A reproduction and translation volume would be great.

    Dude, that is such an awesome deal! Last time I hunted for it, I found it on a Spanish language auction for the equivalent of a couple hundred.
