Baseball in England...
Item # 173858
September 05, 1874
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, September 5, 1874 The most interesting print is a very nice full page print captioned: "Baseball in England -- The Match on Lord's Cricket Grounds Between the Red Stockings and The Athletics". It is unusual in that it shows the full field with players in their positions, and spectators in the foreground.
There is a related article further into the issue headed: "Base-Ball In England" which describes the game and gives the box score as well.
Other prints include a front page Thomas Nast: "Precious Jewel of Thy Home Return"; a full page: "Sketches At Long Branch"; a great doublepage centerfold: "The Game Of Polo" is dramatic. Also a full page: "Bullfight At Madrid".
Complete in sixteen pages.
