Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $406.00

Hardbound first edition (305 pages) of Sports and Pastimes of American Boys by Henry Chadwick. Published in 1884 by George Routledge and Sons of New York. The spectacular mulitcolor cover of this rare book makes it one of the most highly displayable of all early baseball volumes. Few books from any era can compare with the beauty of this gem, and few volumes qualify both as important baseball library additions and significant display items. This is a magnificent example, with just a little wear along the edges and spine, and some very light moisture staining on the lower portion of the inside pages, otherwise in Excellent condition. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$300. SOLD FOR $406.00
