 George Wilkes founded this magazine after the death of William T. Porter. It shortly after absorbed its two competitor’s of similar title and ran until 1902 as the pre-eminent sporting journal. Each issue in this volume contains items of baseball interest in addition to reports of the “gentleman’s” sports of horseracing, draughts, aquatics, hunting and fishing.
