The Joys of Sport by William Yorke Stevenson 1900


This little 6 x 4 book has 226 pages. There are numerous line drawn pictures by G. R. Brill. It cost $1.00.

The book consists of 31 chapters each of which describes a different sport- from Pigeon Shooting to Base Ball, many common and uncommon sports are included.




The 1901 ad below states "Second Edition". The second edition has 226 pages. There is an ad which states that the 1900 book has 200 pages. I have been unable to confirm that the first edition does indeed have 200 pages not the 226 pages.
