1st printing/edition; a fine copy in near fine dust jacket. SIGNED by the author Martin Quigley, dated (1990) and INSCRIBED to. "Martin Quigley" !!!!! - Not a gift to himself but rather to an author/publisher of reference books about the movies who shared his name. A history of the curveball in baseball: "The story of the curveball is the story of the game itself, some would say of life itself." Writing in "Baseball History" (Summer, 1986) Eliot Asinof calls this "a jewel of a book. It seems bewildering that it has not attracted more attention. No baseball library should be without it."
