Self published by the author in 1966 & 1967; Trade Paperback originals (spiral-comb bound). GROUP of 10 each fine: EXCEPT: Vol. 1 (1882) has some "scrapes & nicks" along the top edge & at the upper left corner; Two of the "combs" in Vol. 5 (1886) are broken away; ONLY 4 of the combs on Vol 10 (1891 + index) are present, so while still bound, it's somewhat loose. Most readers, collectors & historians of baseball are familiar with Preston Orem's "Baseball 1854 - 1881" - his 1961 history of the early game, compiled using contemporary newspaper accounts from various cities. Less well known are the SUPPLEMENTS to the master volume. Orem apperently wanted to publish a 2nd volume of his history which would cover 1882 onward. It seems lack of commercial interest and financial backing, prevented this. However, in late 1966 he did start to publish chapters from the book as individual supplements, each covering a single year from 1882-1891, each following the same format as the book. 10 supplements were eventually published, the final volume covering 1891 with a very useful INDEX to the original book & all the supplements. This is a COMPLETE SET of the Orem supplements. Each issue is NUMBERED & SIGNED by Orem. Uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-15509420095
