New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1880. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. Octavo. Bound in original brown pictorial gilt cloth. This title predcedes by four years, "Our Baseball Club and How it Won the Championship" by Noah Brooks. The second and last chapters describe games between the Fairport Nine and a team made up of working class youth. One game continues through the bottom of the ninth, even though the home team has won. The main character, Billy Hetherington, is best friends with Sam Black, who is black and also the team's star left fielder. Expert repair to spine ends, new endpapers; minor browning and foxing, but overall a very attractive copy of an early baseball rarity. Housed in a custom mococco backed slipcase. (Inventory #: 2156)
