    I stand corrected. In tracking down the information Cdnronin requested, I found I miss-associated Driscoll for Biddell. Lt. Col. A.J. Drexel Biddle.

    You'll find I always try to be the honest broker, and will try to answer questions with valid information where it is recoverable.

    I was pretty sure you were thinking of Drexel-Biddle, but was willing to learn more about Driscoll if possible.

    No sweat, we all make word association mistakes, you have the honesty to admit it.

    I immediately recalled the (unrelated by author) "Boxing for Beginners" by Raycroft and Jacomb.

    Unlike most other manuals that I republish, particularly from after the turn of the century, this is not pic heavy. It has a total of 11 pics and that's only if you include the frontispiece. Of the remaining 10 only 7 seem intended to show actual technique or theory. Then again, weighing in under 75 pages total (including blank pages, title pages, and "picture pages"), it's a somewhat small manual.

    Don't believe Raycroft had anything to do with that book. No mention of him in my copy(of both of Jacomb's books)

    IMS, he wrote the foreword for the quoted historic article.

    The transcription is done! I've re-touched the pics and covers. I've written the marketoid-blurb. Now I just need to publish it via lulu!

    I'll post when it's ready (over in the YMAS with a request to move the thread here after 24).

    WOOT!

    Peace favor your sword,
