The Sun Field

by BROUN, Heywood

Condition: Very Good/Near Fine

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1923. Very Good/Near Fine. 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.
