The 2nd Edition of The Billiard Encyclopedia is the only complete book ever written on the sport of billiards, pool and related accessories. Tracing the origins back to the ball and bat games of the Egyptians, the co-authors have provided a complete history of the billiards sport as we know it today. Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of stunning color-plates, many B&W photos, and numerous graphic illustrations, much of the visual imagery of this tome has never been seen by the public before. Taking over 8 years to assemble, this publication also includes important chapters on the legendary pool players, cue makers, table manufacturers, and important accessories which have allowed the sport to achieve a world-wide status.
