From the Publisher:
"This is an invaluable volume for baseball fans and American history buffs alike." --Sports Illustrated ||Ty Cobb slides into third in a flurry of dust and spikes. Home Run Baker, young and strong, takes batting practice while his teammates stand in awe. Wee Willie Keeler and Cy Young, Babe Ruth and Dizzy Dean, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams--these and other American heroes take the field in Baseball's Golden Age: The Photographs of Charles M. Conlon. ||From 1904 to 1942, Conlon photographed it all, creating some of baseball's most famous photographs, but the photographer himself has remained practically unknown. This volume is the first publication to reproduce Conlon's photographs as fine art and to give his remarkable legacy its due. Selected and printed from the Conlon negatives in the archives of The Sporting News, 205 dazzling images fill the pages of Baseball's Golden Age. ||The glory of that time shines through in the text as well, as author Neal McCabe has assembled wonderful, evocative stories that bring these legendary baseball heroes to life. Baseball's Golden Age continues to please all fans of baseball--past, present, and future.
Author Bio
Roger Angell
A 1942 graduate of Harvard, Angell worked for several magazines in the '40s and '50s before becoming a contributor to "The New Yorker", where he has had a long career, eventually becoming a fiction editor. His lyrical, clear-eyed essays on baseball have won him many devotees and a reputation as one of the country's most gifted sportswriters. His year-end holiday poem, in which he rhymes an incredible assortment of notables from the year just past, has become something of a tradition at "The New Yorker".
