Description

Classic book from 1897 titled That Football Game and What Came of It by Francis J. Finn, S.J. (third edition). Finn also authored the popular Tom Playfair series. There is a one page illustration next to the title page with those Millwaukee College boys playing football and gaining necessary disipline. Book has detached title page but in otherwise good condition.

“I regard football as the greatest of all games, principally for the reason that it schools a boy to almost heroic self-restraint both on and off the field.” —Pages 21-22

“Football is essentially a young gentlemen’s game. It is quite feasible, at times, to play a game of baseball with rough characters; but in football, you must play only with gentlemen—otherwise the game becomes a slugging match and a question as to which is the better or worse set of rowdies.” —Page 25
