The Argosy Book of Sports Stories (First Edition)


New York: A.S Barnes, 1953. First Edition, hardcover 8vo, 340pp, original dust jacket with color pugilist art by John [Walter] Scott. Anthology collecting stories from earlier Popular Publications magazines. Boxing on the jacket front, baseball book ad on the rear, stories on golf, baseball, golf, boxing, football, even racing. Very Good plus overall, with moderate toning, faint pencil on the endpapers; jacket with heavy spine fading, light edge wear, paper repairs on the verso at the spine ends, brief pencil on the front flap. Still packs quite a visual punch. Since these hardcover sports books were often read by like-minded owners, editions are not often found in collectible quality.
