In 1888, William Edwards wrote "The Art of Boxing and Manual of Training" with the help of his friend and former ring opponent, Arthur Chambers. One of the earliest American books on the subject, "The Art of Boxing and Manual of Training" features detailed boxing techniques as well as tips on diet and exercise. The book also includes the various rules governing ringcraft, most notably the American Fair-Play Rules. The inclusion of these rules resulted in the book's inclusion in a landmark 1895 Supreme Court case pitting the state of Louisiana against boxing in New Orleans. This deluxe edition contains additional material including William Edwards' obituary and newspaper reports of the Louisiana court case.
