This facsimile reprint of the Boy Scouts Handbook presents—in color for the first time—the more than 200 original black and white figures and illustrations, including the vintage advertisements that accompanied the 1911 edition (Brownie cameras, Steero bouillon cubes, and Remington rifles). The handbook standardized American scouting and emphasized the virtues and qualifications for scouting, explaining the information, skills, and principles that the American Boy Scouts deemed necessary to becoming a "well-developed, well-informed boy." The book discusses the organization of scouting, signs and signaling, camping, scouting games, and a description of several scouting honors.
