Author : MJG Ritchie & Walter Harrison
Comments : Of some historical interest the book represents the state of the art in 1902, published simultaneously in Philadelphia, USA
Author : Frank Hammett Norton
Comments : Contains an interesting but untrue story of how the game originated in Japan.
Author : M G Ritchie & Arnold Parker
Comments : Also sub-titled ‘The New Table Game as Played in America’. Basic sound advice in a booklet for inclusion in a boxed set.
Author : C G Eames
Comments : A rather lengthy diatribe into the merits of the game with precious little of instructional help. I have never seen an original, but I do remember a distraught Ron Crayden, after his his copy had been stolen from his Stand at the ’77 World Championships.
Author : Spalding Athletic Series
Comments : 27 pages of instruction PLUS 36 pages of advertisements for Spalding equipment, line drawings, illustrations and simple text. The advertising material is probably of more interest than the instructional section.
