Best wrestling books
Rogers, British poet.

By Kyle Klingman "TWM Columnist, the history of wrestling in books is fascinating.

From the beginning, wrestling held a prominent place in writing.

The Epic of Gilgamesh, considered by many to be oldest surviving piece of literature, features a wrestling match between Gilgamesh and Enkidu.

The story of the ancient Sumerian ruler predates the Bible and the Homeric epics (both of which include wrestling) by over 1000 years.

Through the ages books have been viewed as both good and evil.

Perhaps the greatest holder of books was the Royal Library of Alexandria.

The Egyptian library was formed in the 3rd century.C.

During the rule of Ptolemy.

It is estimated that over 500,000 scrolls were kept there at its zenith.

Upon arrival to the great city of Alexandria all books were confiscated.

Ptolemy III ordered that all visitors were to give up any writing in their possession.

The scrolls were taken and copied by scribes with the original being placed in the library and a duplicate copy given to the original owner.

Unfortunately, this great library was destroyed and a tremendous amount of history and knowledge was taken with.

One of the world's great mysteries is who was responsible for annihilation of this great museum.

According to scientist Carl Sagan we would be on Mars if that library was still in existence.
