1908 El Base Ball En Cuba y America by Ramon S. Mendoza, Jose Maria Herrero, and Manuel F. Calcines. Published by Comas y Lopez, Habana. This 248-page soft-cover book, written entirely in Spanish, is notable for the fact that the cover features an illustration of Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson. Fifteen pages are devoted to American baseball, which focus on the World Series participants in 1908: The Tigers and the Cubs. Included are short biographies of Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, Mordecai Brown, Frank Chance, Johnny Evers, and Joe Tinker. This is a very rare book and one of only a few examples we have seen over the years. The book (6.25 x 8.5 inches) displays tape along the spine and numerous edge tears to both covers, as well as a vintage ink notation (in Spanish) on the first page. In Very Good condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate $300+. SOLD FOR $830
