In this study we present the first historical annotated bibliography of Spanish football in the first third of the twentieth century. On the one hand, we show the first football literature published in Spain, essentially technical- propagandistic type, which emerged in the cultural context of Modernism and under the umbrella of Regenerationism. On the other hand, we show football monographs, which is a predominant type of work in this period that reflects the prominence and popular success that football achieved as a mass-entertainment sport. The 121 works that are discussed in this repertoire have been found through the use of a wide variety of heuristic techniques as printed catalogues, records from historical newspaper archives, and searches in computerised databases or in antique bookshops. The contribution of this repertoire will contribute to knowledge of the social impact of this sport and facilitate the development of further studies on the subject matter.
