George Benedict's writings on boxing are some of the most widespread and profusely illustrated of their kind in the late 19th century. In addition to his ability as an illustrator, Benedict was a talented athlete. He held the amateur middleweight boxing championship of the West, the club-swinging championship of the West, and was knowledgeable in a wide variety of different sports--from caber-tossing to gymnastics. This book is a synthesis of the 1881 and 1883 editions of his boxing manual.
