Default 1858 Mass Association of Base Ball Players Ad


I acquired the item scanned below a few months ago. It is blank backed and advertises the coming sale of rules that were adopted on May 13 1858. Interestingly, Base was spelled Bass which I assume was a misunderstanding on the printer's part (bass ball would be really difficult to play).

Does anyone have a scan of the 1858 rule booklet this ad references? Has anyone seen any other advertisements for this rule booklet? Please feel free to post anything related to the 1858 rules.
