Abridged in our auction lot title, the full title of this exceedingly rare and desirable volume is practically auction copy on its own:

    Pugilistica: The History of British Boxing Containing Lives of the Most Celebrated Pugilists and Full Reports of their Battles from Contemporary Newspapers and Periodicals, with Authentic Portraits from Original Prints, Paintings, and Busts, Biographical Details, Personal Anecdotes, Sketches of the Principal Patrons of the P.R., Etc., Being the Only Complete and Chronological History of the Prize Ring by Henry Downes Mills, Many Years Ring Reporter to the London Daily Press and Bell's Life in London, Editor of The Sportsman's Magazine, Author of 'The Book of Field Sports," Etc., Etc.

    The OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) and German equivalent (KVK) indicate the existence of just three volumes in public collections, and it is doubtful that many more survive in private hands. This example exhibits typical spine and edge rubbing but remains solid and complete.
