Default pugilistica

I work in a library and I've just come across this book in our reference stacks. It was published in 1906 and details the previous 140 years of British boxing. It's fascinating and as far as I can tell, quite rare. Seen it online for about 400 or so.

Was wondering, has anyone seen or read this?

Never see or heard of it, but it does sound quite interesting, what library has this little beauty stashed away?

Would love to read that! Short of you photocopying every page I doubt I'll ever see it.
