Title: Boy Scouts Handbook - The First Edition, 1911

Author: Boy Scouts of America

Pages: 365

Details: Fully Illustrated

The Boy Scout Handbook is the official handbook of the Boy Scouts of America. It is a descendant of Baden-Powell's original handbook, Scouting for Boys, which has been the basis for Scout handbooks in many countries, with some variations to the text of the book depending on each country's codes and customs.

The original edition of the handbook was based on Baden-Powell's work. Ernest Thompson Seton combined his Woodcraft manual, the Birch Bark Rolls, with Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys. Subsequent works were done by other authors. William "Green Bar Bill" Hillcourt wrote the 6th, 7th, and 9th editions. Frederick L. Hines wrote the 8th, and Robert Birkby the 10th, 11th and 12th editions.

The book describes many Scout-like virtues and qualifications. After a lengthy section on what a Scout should know, including chivalry, history, and national issues, we read that "In short, to be a good Scout is to be a well-developed, well-informed boy."

Ratings and Reviews

Pretty good at a great price


This is a pretty good presentation of this classic Boy Scout Handbook at a price much less than the printed version. This copy doesn't have all of the extras that the current iPhone edition of the new Boy Scout Handbook has, but it is a great companion book nonetheless.

Not quite...


I haven't spent much time in this just yet, but I'm not happy with it thus far. It isn't very intuitive. Controls are very lacking.

It is a glorified PDF file (an unsearchable PDF, as far as I can tell).

It has a ways to go, for sure!

I wouldn't pay $.99 for it, let alone $2.99!!

Waste of money


Junk. Not what I was looking for.
