Description



Last summer, we sold another first-edition copy of this classic tome for over $1,300. Highlights include a nice 1897 team photo and various individual portraits including Duffy, Nichols and Collins. The title page describes the 7x9 hardback as "Being a Public Testimonial to the Players of the 1897 Team in Recognition of the Magnificent Work of the Past Season. A Concise and Accurate History of Base Ball From Its Inception. Containing Biographical Sketches of Past Managers and Players, and of the Present Year's Boston Team." VG except for an interior full spine split that was long ago shored up with tape that has since re-split. Nice gilt lettering on the cover.
