THE Y.M.C.A. BOYS AT FOOTBALL or, Lively Doings On and Off the Gridiron. #3 in series.
Edition: First edition.
New York: Cupples & Leon Company, (1917). Hardcover first edition - The third and final volume in this series which "relates the doings of a wide-awake boys' club of the Y.M.C.A., full of good times and every-day practical Christianity. Clean, elevating and full of fun and vigor, books that should be read by every boy. . . The Y.M.C.A. boys are plucky lads--clean-minded and true as steel. They have many ups and downs, but in the end they 'win out' in the best meaning of the term." Glossy frontispiece and three internal glossy plates by R. Emmett Owen. The copyright page notes "other titles in preparation" but they were never published. 248 pp plus 4 pp of publisher's ads.
Condition: Good only in illustrated tan boards - some fraying to the ends of the spine, wear to the corners, missing rear endpaper, toning to the pages - but despite the flaws, this is a straight and tight copy of rather hard-to-find book.
