Billy Edwards, born in England, traveled to the United States of America to pursue his passion of boxing. Facing such greats as Mike Donovan and Sam Collyer throughout his career, Edwards earned and held the title of Lightweight Champion of America during 1868-1872. In 1888, Edwards published his manual, together with the help of his friend, long-time sparring partner, and oft-times professional ring opponent, Aurthur Chambers. This manual catalogs footwork, striking technique, throwing, diet, exercise, and training recommendations for both amateur and professional boxers. Edwards provided his manual liberally with illustrations, 26 in all, in which he and Chambers pose. Additionally, Edwards includes and recommends for amateur use the American Fair-Play Rules for boxing, a little known and never officially adopted rule set. Most uniquely, this manual was actually used a significant court case, namely Louisiana State vs. Olympic Club, 1894.
