3 Frommer, Harvey New York City baseball The last golden age, 1947-1957
New York Macmillan 1980 0025417002 / 9780025417007 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Inscribed and signed by author. Rare. Dust has minor chips and some sunfading to spine. Now covered in mylar protective cover. ""More than ever before, baseball was the national pastime during the post-war years. It was a game with easily identifiable heroes in tempo with the rhythm of the times. For a nation eager for heroes, baseball met that need. For New York City, eager for entertainment after the lights went on again following the darkness of World War II, the Yankees, the Giants, the Dodgers -- their rivalry, their successes, their stars -- attracted the fanatical attention of millions. New York City Baseball recaptures the golden decade, 1947-1957, when the three New York teams -- at least one of whom played in the World Series every year but 1948 -- were the uncrowned kings of the city. More than just nostalgic, it is an exciting recreation of a passionately lived era a pulse-quickening play-by-play account of some of the greatest moments in sport and the people who made them happen." Editorial Review. ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 219 pages; Signed by Author

New York, NY Harper & Brothers 1958 9997554000 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine in Good dust jacket Illustrated by Taylor Oughton 
Rare First edition as identified by points in Rogers "Zane Grey First Editions" (1986). Has H-H and stated first edition on copywrite page. Near fine hardback with green cloth cover and 1/4 black spine cover. Gilt stamped title on spine. Dust has 1/4 inch chip missing from top of spine area with fading to edges. Text clean and bright. Tight binding looks like never read. Pearl Zane Grey (January 31, 1872 - October 23, 1939) was an American dentist and author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories associated with the Western genre in literature and the arts; he idealized the American frontier. Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) was his best-selling book. Pearl Zane Grey was born in Zanesville, Ohio. His birth name may have originated from newspaper descriptions of Queen Victoria's mourning clothes as "pearl grey". He was the fourth of five children born to Alice "Allie" Josephine Zane, whose English Quaker immigrant ancestor Robert Zane came to the North American colonies in 1673, and her husband, Lewis M. Gray, a dentist. His family changed the spelling of their last name to "Grey" after his birth. Later Grey dropped Pearl and used Zane as his first name. He grew up in Zanesville, a city founded by his maternal great-grandfather Ebenezer Zane, an American Revolutionary War patriot, and from an early age, he was intrigued by history. Grey developed interests in fishing, baseball, and writing, all of which contributed to his writing success. His first three novels recounted the heroism of ancestors who fought in the American Revolutionary War.
