The Norman Clare Articles

Part one - The origin of the game of Billiards
The origin of the game of Billiards is very obscure, although many efforts have been made to trace its history, always without success. There are in existence a number of "theories" or "anecdotes" which endeavour to explain the origin of the game.
Past Masters - Edwin Kentfield & John Carr.

Part two - Rules and Improvements
Rule No. XXXVI Whoever stops a ball when running, with hand, stick, or otherwise loses the lead and if his adversary don't like the ball he has to play at the next stroke.

Part three - Past Masters - John Roberts senior.
