Autobiography of Oscar Mathew Nelson, the Danish lightweight boxer who emigrated to the USA. He became the World Lightweight Champion after defeating Joe Gans in 1908. This book was published soon after that fight and is an extraordinary feat of self-publicity. Covers all his major fights up to that point with many photographs and illustrations.
First edition. 8vo. 265pp. Original boards with green titles. A very good copy of a rare book.
