Book of American Pastimes, Containing a History of the Principal Base Ball, Cricket, Rowing and Yachting Clubs of the United States
New York: Published by The Author 1866. First edition. Reddish-brown cloth gilt. 556pp. Tiny early owner's name, corners a little rubbed and bumped, a very good or better copy with one signature slightly sprung, still an unusually nice copy of a very important, self-published book. Over 150 pages are devoted to baseball. Grobani in his definitive Guide to Baseball Literature characterizes this book under General Histories as G1 and comments: "Sketches of all National Association Clubs... The definitive history of early baseball." Almost always found in deplorable condition, this is a nice copy and very uncommon thus.
