    Boxing and Wrestling by Ed James

    I have republished the 1878 "Boxing and Wrestling" by Ed James.

    Blurb:
    Published from New York in 1878, this manual on Boxing and Wrestling
    offers instructions for the budding enthusiast of Physical Culture and
    "Scientific" self defense.

    Lauded by publications from the New York Sun to the St. Louis Herald,
    this instruction manual is liberally provided with 21 illustrations
    outlining both pugilistic and grappling techniques.

    Most uniquely, Ed James offers details on the mysterious art of
    "Japanese Wrestling," completely unknown in the West at the time of
    original publication.

    Altogether, this book is a must-have for students of 19th Century
    Pugilism and Wrestling as well as for modern advocates of the sports
    and historic self defense.
    Special thanks to Ken Pfrenger for making this text available to me for republishing

    As usual, the download is free.

    Many thanks.

    I've noticed a number of these old manuals seem against hard training. This one says 20 minutes max of sparring, and the Fitzsimmons one talks about not using more than 3lb dumbbells. Any thoughts?

    Different theories on exercise.

    FWIW, it was good enough to get them to last a hundred rounds or more in some cases.

    Still, I agree that our science is better developed today.

    Awesome find, I love these old manuals and this one has such a perfect subject matter.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."
    -A.J. Newton, Boxing.

    I got the impression that they were intending that advice for the average person just starting out who was training to get in shape or as a hobby. I seriously doubt that the professional fighters of the day that were engaging in bouts scheduled "To the finish" were restricting their sparring to only 20 minutes.

    Quite welcome.

    The other colleague in this case is Ken Pfrenger. His name has come up here on BS before.
