From tothe Handbook was entitled The Official Handbook for Boys, with printings numbered consecutively from 1 to 37 plus two "reprints" and three "special" printings for a total of 42 printings. It taught lashings and the taut line hitch. Later printings finally correct the patrol leader badge to show two bars. The campout requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class are roughly doubled, and require that all but one be in a tent printings after 1 August reflect slightly revised advancement requirements to camp in a tent for all required overnights. There is a day or 4-week physical fitness requirement in Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class.

Beforeeach section of the Handbook was written by an expert in that field, sometimes a BSA employee and sometimes an outside expert. Sixteen-year-old Jimmy, on probation for assault, talks about life with three old men in a Harlem barbershop and hears about the tools he can use to get what he wants. Myers captures both the naivete and the zesty, not quite cynical speech of a smart city kid trying to appear tougher than he is. Proper uniform wear was also covered. Years later, Baden-Powell wrote a book called Aids to Scouting, much a written explantion of the lessons he had learned from Burnham.

The full-sized sewing templates formerly on the inside covers have been shrunk and hidden on pages Starting with the late printings of the 7th Edition aboutthe BSA has used the cheaper "perfect" binding, where each page is glued directly to the spine like a pad of paper. Advertising From throughthe BSA subsidized the cost of producing the Handbook by selling commercial advertising space in the Handbook. Other promoted products have included outboard motors, cameras, bicycles and motor scooters, toy trains, watches, 3-in-One oil, Mercurochrome, and musical instruments. Proper uniform wear was also covered. The current version of uniform shirts for women are available in Scout shops now.
