by William George Beers

Text of the 1879 New Edition which included the revised and amended Laws of Lacrosse as well as the Constitution of the National Lacrosse Association of Canada. The original was published in 1869.

An errata included with the 1875 London edition corrected the following errors (the errors were not corrected in the 1879 New Edition):

  • On page 10 of the Preface, "1861" should read "1860"
  • On page 92, "expirment" (text actually reads "expeirment") should read "experiment"
  • On page 94, "disposi-" should read "disposition"
  • On page 193, "followy our" should read "follow your"
  • On page 195, "success" should read "sweep"
  • On page 195, "bath has passe" should read "ball has passed"

The corrections have been marked using tooltips.
