In this publication, read how James (Jem) Belcher (1781-1811) became the Champion of England in prizefighting (the predecessor of modern-day boxing), and how the distinctively patterned handkerchief he sported became a fashion rage. Some of the prizefighters fought by Jem Belcher included Bill Warr, Tom Jones, Andrew Gamble, Joe Berks, John Firby, and Tom Cribb.
This book also includes a reprint of the rare A Treatise on Boxing by Jem Belcher, in which Belcher gives his insights on the art and science of boxing. Also included in this book is a chronology of Jem Belcher's life, a section on the meaning of the Belcher name, and illustrations of Jem Belcher and the historic Belcher Handkerchief.
