The Sun Field
G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York 1923 - First edition. Pencil owner's name on the front fly, a couple of small splash marks and a small sunned patch near the front gutter, a very good or better copy in near fine dustwrapper with a few very small nicks at the corners. According to McCue's, *Baseball by the Books: A History and Bibliography of Baseball Fiction* (pg. 25): "The first novel with serious baseball content aimed at an adult audience. The book is narrated by a former sportswriter, as Broun was, in love with a free-spirited, intellectual feminist, as was Broun's wife, while she falls for a baseball player who is clearly modeled on Babe Ruth. Numerous players of the early 1920s appear by name." Exceptionally uncommon in any sort of reasonably attractive dustwrapper See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
