More > Berkeley, Evans House, and “elsewhere in Boston” as well as at Harvard College. His book is somewhat transitional between London Prize Ring rules and amateur boxing rules, focusing on Boxing as a legitimate gentleman’s fitness sport.

Shaw’s manual contains a wealth of unusual information, documented in clear “cuts” illustrations, supposedly from photographs at great expense, and succinct instruction.
