New York: American Sports Publishing, 1911.
First edition. Cartoons by Homer C. Davenport. Illustrated with photographs. A couple of faint finger marks on the front board, a couple of tiny tears near the crown, and the hinges professionally and seamlessly tightened, a nice, near fine copy. A much nicer than usual example of a book known to fall apart from the weight of its pages. This copy Inscribed by the author: "To my esteemed friend Mr. Samuel Bonn with my compliments and Christmas Greetings. A.G. Spalding. Point Loma, Calif. Dec. 25, 1911." A very important early history, and increasingly hard to find signed.
