Reprints of 3 Baseball Classics – by Jacob Morse, Sol. White and John Ward.

Lot 281. Reprints of 3 Baseball Classics – by Jacob Morse, Sol. White and John Ward. The books by Morse and White are hardbacks without dust jackets from Camden House Library’s series of limited editions. “Sphere and Ash” by Morse, first published in 1888, is among the first baseball histories. In fact, in his introduction to the Camden edition, John Thorn, now the Official Baseball Historian for Major League Baseball, characterizes it as THE FIRST baseball history. Morse was the Boston correspondent for “Sporting Life.” Published in 1984, the Camden edition is #420 of 500 and nm. Solomon White’s “Base Ball Guide” represents another first – the first book on black baseball and the Negro Leagues. White was captain of the Philadelphia Giants, champions of the Negro Leagues from 1905-07. Published in 1984 by Camden House as “Sol. White’s Official Base Ball Guide,” the book is #237 of 500 and nm-m. The book contains many illustrations. In 1993, the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) reprinted in softcover John Ward’s 1888 “Base-Ball: How to Become a Player.” Ward’s book provides information on playing each baseball position. The softcover reprint is nm. Winning Bid $45.
