Hardcover 1st printing of the 1st edition (Barnes, 1947). Very good condition - no dust jacket. As Meany explains in his Preface, this is NOT a biography; it is NOT "Ruth's "own" story as those ghost-written auto-biographies are often termed." What it IS are veteran New York baseball reporter Meany's "impressions of the greatest baseball figure who ever lived, an attempt to reflect a few of the many colorful facets that make up this fabulous character."
