Description

This is the definitive collection of America's greatest baseball photographer, Charles M. Conlon (1868-1945). To create this book, author Neal McCabe spent years combing through the archive looking for gems. To make the cut, each photograph needed to be exceptional in itself and significant to the history of baseball. This book is remarkable not only for the quality of its reproductions, but also for the interest and accuracy of its text. Each caption is meticulously based on contemporary reports and quotes from the players themselves, and famous incidents in the sport are reported with unusual detail and authority.show more
