PORTER'S SPIRIT OF THE TIMES, New York, Feb. 7, 1857
* Pre-Civil War baseball
Basically a sporting & theatrically themed newspaper with a great article inside headed: "Base Ball - Empire Club". This was just the 2nd professional baseball club in New York. The article takes a full column & begins: "This club was organized Oct. 23, 1854 & consisted at first of only 11 members. It has now upwards of 40 members. They meet for exercise on the ground at the Elysian Fields, Hoboken..." with much more. Nice content on the individual players, etc.
Sixteen pages, nice condition.
