This was originally a softback. The back cover was loose and so it has been given hard covers. On the front is a photocopy of the original cover, on the spine is a photocopy of the original spine. The original covers are retained, the front is soiled with a little creasing and a touch of loss. There is soiling to the inside of the cover. It is signed in ink on the front free end paper by Nelson with a long dedication as usual . Nice and clean inside. The introduction speaks of Nelson as the richest pugilist in the world, telling of his progress in the ring and the shrewd investment of his earnings. The 25 chapters relate the story of the author's career, from his birth in Denmark on June 5th 1882 to his victory over Joe Gans to become the undisputed Lightweight champion of the world. 264pp; illus.
