Rare and presumably earliest edition of these standard rules for trap shooting. Preceding the two recorded editions, published at Boston in 1893 and 1898, the latter described in Riling 1449. OCLC records only a single location for each of these later editions, at the Center for Research Libraries (1893) and at the Huntington (1898). The present edition is unrecorded by bibliographers.

The President of the Club was Charles W. Dimick; Vice-President, J.A.H. Dressel; General Manager Maj. J.M. Taylor.
