The Classical Pugilism & Bare-Knuckle Boxing Companion (vol.1&2)

bullshi-books or no?

It seems like the only place I can find copies of early manuals on bare knuckles boxing from bare knuckles boxers of old. I cant seem to find the original works of Lee, Corbett, or others. But I woudl love to see a review of this damn book by a historian and especially a damn fighter.

If you know of a good place to find old texts I would certainely appreciate a link.
