    Description

    1912 "Base Ball and Base Ball Players" by Elwood A. Roff. Early history of our National Pastime was a labor of love for Roff, who self-published the 253-page hardcover volume. Text ranges from a standard accounting of League foundings and pennant races to tales of player deaths and records for throwing and catching. No expert has attempted to estimate the original print run, but many believe that no more than five copies exist today. The green boards exhibit light wear with a few bumps, and interior pages remain clean and free of distraction. A truly fascinating rarity.
