Vintage 1959 Babe Ruth – Baseball Boy HC Book w/DJ


Out of stock


For sale here is a vintage 50s “Childhood of Famous Americans” hardcover book w/dust jacket titled “Babe Ruth – Baseball Boy” written by Guernsey Van Riper, Jr. and illustrated by Seymour Fleishman. It was published by The New Bobbs-Merrill Company and the latest copyright date is ©1959. The book measures about 7.75″ x 6″ and has 200 pages. The dust jacket is very nice with some wear and tiny tears on edges and a couple light crease spots. Price has been clipped (seen in pic). The hardcover is excellent with just slightly bumped corners. Inside pages are excellent with no flaws at all – looks to have never been read! Honestly, it looks like someone purchased this new in 1959 and then just put it on a shelf and left it there! Would be a beautiful, vintage book to give as a gift to a Babe Ruth fan!
