1 Adler, Richard Mack, McGraw and the 1913 Baseball Season
Jefferson McFarland & Co. 2008 0786436751 / 9780786436750 Soft Cover As New Large Octavo 
"The 1913 season marked the end of an era, with legendary managers John McGraw and Connie Mack facing each other in the World Series for the third and final time. Rich Adler has done a fine job of recapturing the drama of the campaign and the nuances of the unforgettable personalities involved. A must-read for anyone who loves this fascinating bygone era." -- Peter Morris, author of Baseball Fever, A Game of Inches, and Level Playing Fields. 323pp.

2 Alexander, Charles C. John McGraw
New York Viking 1988 0670807303 / 9780670807307 Hard Cover Near Fine DJ Near Fine Large Octavo 
From Library Journal: "Alexander portrays famed Giant manager John McGraw without sentimental bias. McGraw's career is a story of two baseball eras: its rowdy early days and the cool, corporate operations of post-World War I. McGraw's constant umpire baiting, penchant for inspiring either hatred or loyalty, and bond with star pitcher Christy Mathewson through many championship years, reveal a fiery, dictatorial, and brilliant man. Highly recommended." 358pp.

3 Alexander, Charles C. Turbulent Seasons: Baseball In 1890-1891
Dallas Southern Methodist University Press 2011 0870745727 / 9780870745720 1st Printing Hard Cover Fine DJ Fine Large Octavo 
"Charles Alexander has an uncanny knack of putting his subject into its historical context. Several years ago author David Block wrote an outstanding book about the origins of baseball. It was entitled Baseball Before We Knew It. As I read Turbulent Seasons I feel it could be subtitled Baseball As We've Come To Know It. Alexander shines a bright and often amusing light on a cast of characters comprising some of baseball's most colorful players and owners, including a hard-living, fun-loving group of players who literally attempted to hijack baseball and almost pulled it off over the course of one very Ďturbulent season." - Rick Huhn, author of Eddie Collins and The Sizzler: George Sisler, Baseballís Forgotten Great. 272pp.

8 Bogovich, Richard Kid Nichols: A Biography of the Hall of Fame Pitcher
Jefferson McFarland & Co. 2012 0786465220 / 9780786465224 Soft Cover Fine Large Octavo 
the first full-length biography of Kid Nichols (1869-1953), who won 30 or more games a record seven times and was the youngest pitcher to reach 300 career victories. Much new light is shed on Nicholsí early life in Madison, Wisconsin, along with important influences and experiences as a teenager living in Kansas City. Nicholsí professional career is documented by drawing heavily from publications of the era and his own words. The high regard in which he was held by fans, teammates and even opponents is contrasted with his contentious relationship with team owners. Nicholsí period of restlessness, ambition and risk-taking following his long stint with Bostonís National League team is detailed, as is the campaign to get him into the Hall of Fame. The book includes previously unpublished photos from his descendantsí archives, many more than a century old. 270pp.
