Description

Football historians discover an ancient treasure with this 1934 Burlington Daily New "Intercollegiate Football" reference book. Edited by Christy Walsh, this hefty hardcover volume is subtitled "A Complete Pictorial and Statistical Review from 1869-1934". Condition gets a plus nod as this vintage tome takes the field in (EX-MT) condition with a solid spine, full graphics on the cover and only minor traces of wear. Crammed with an awesome array of player and coach photos, game results and pertinent commentary, this inspiring "1st Edition" book traces the college football game from its "birth" in 1869 through the middle of the "Great Depression" era. Of particular note among the numerous photos featured throughout, are full page shots of legends Knute Rockne, Jim Thorpe and Walter Camp.
