Description

William Hanford "Big Bill" Edwards (d.1943), College Football Hall of Famer and nineteenth century gridiron pioneer endorsed the fly leaf of this 1916 Football Days hard bound book. The seminal 463-page account of collegiate football at the turn-of-the-century is noteworthy for its detail and poignant commentary. The third printing is personalized with a salutation in dark steel-tip fountain pen with the autograph rating ("9-10") strength. The volume displays moderate cloth splitting along the spine along with additional contusions. Despite those flaws, the signature of the author and the overall construction of the book is not compromised. Full photo LOA from JSA.
