Rare copies of Spalding's Official Football Guide Edited by Walter Camp Containing the New Rules for 1912 and 1913. These books measure approximately 5" wide by 6.5" tall and contains over 300 pages of pictures and information about various college and high school football teams across the country. Inside the 1913, there's mention of Ohio State's eventual three-time All-American Chic Harley as an All-Columbus High School Eleven selection for East High, mentions of Boyd Cherry and Don Barricklow, along with an individual and team picture of the great Jim Thorpe. The 1912 also mentions Barricklow and again contains a couple of photos of Carlisle's Jim Thorpe. Books are completely intact, but the binding is very fragile with soft edges on both.
