Schopenhauer was able to publish an enlarged second edition to his major work in 1843, which more than doubled the size of the original edition. The new expanded edition earned Schopenhauer no more acclaim than the original work. He published a work of popular philosophical essays and aphorisms aimed at the general public in 1851 under the title, Parerga and Paralipomena (Secondary Works and Belated Observations) . This work, the most unlikely of his books, earned him his fame, and from the most unlikely of places: a review written by the English scholar John Oxenford, entitled “Iconoclasm in German Philosophy,” which was translated into German. The review excited an interest in German readers, and Schopenhauer became famous virtually overnight. Schopenhauer spent the rest of his life reveling in his hard won and belated fame, and died in 1860.

Early Settlement wrestling (1870-1900) saw European , largely UK style and championed locally by men like James Conmee. Then into the Settlement Expansion era (1900-1930), catch-as-catch can took over, the precursor to modern style wrestling. The story came alive with local adherents often of Finnish heritage. During the Great Depression many of the immigrants returned home and the advent of professional wrestling began.
