The Fairport Nine
Charles Scribner's Sons 1880 - First edition. ix, 188, (6)pp. Original brown cloth lettered and decorated in black and gilt, yellow endpapers. Housed in a plain brown cloth slipcase. Very Good or better with some rubbing and scuffing to cloth, slight lean to spine, former owner's bookplate on front paste down, a few reading smudges. An attractive unsophisticated copy of the early baseball novel, written by a friend of Abraham Lincoln's and set in Brooks' boyhood town of Castine (here called "Fairport"), Maine in the 1840s. Among the ways in which it was ahead of its time is its sympathetic includion of a young African-American baseball player. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
