This is post #1 of 2 postings on the Time! by the Waterbury Watch Co..
This is a Waterbury Watch Co. 10-page advertising booklet, dated with copyright 1887 by S. C. Patterson, 177 Broadway, N.Y.
It is using sporting events related to time in advertising their time-pieces.
There has been some water damage to the booklet and apparently, a child perhaps has used it for a coloring book, but otherwise in decent shape.
