This book gives content on such things as attributes developed by ball players, training for basketball, rules and their changes, and basketball in corrective, class, school, churches, etc. Also a history of the evolution of the ball is provided. In this booklet , the AXS and AXL Rawlings-Naismith official crossed-lace valve type , intercollegiate type basketballs are pictured. However, determining the actual publication date for the booklet was difficult. The book references 1909. However, the basketballs in the book are much newer than that. The Rawlings Facebook page shows an advertisement for the AXS and AXL Naismith Signature basketballs - the same ones shown in this booklet. Naismith's image in the booklet matches the one in this advertisement. This places the actual date of this booklet confidently around 1930.
