This is "Pictorial History of American Sports" by John Durant and Otto Bettmann, 1952, A.S. Barnes & Co., 280 pages, hardcover with embossed-leather exterior details including an illustration entitled, "The Immortal Babe." Wear is present on the cover with occasional spotting inside. A modern embossment reading, "J.D. Rocco," appears on the front cover. About VG overall, owing to exterior wear, but the spine is firm. This volume contains loads of period photos from all eras (U.S. Colonial times and forward) with images of Rockne, Owens, Henie, Zaharias, Bobby Jones, Ruth, and dozens of others. A fascinating and seldom-encountered work, filled with facts and photos!
