De Witt's Base Ball Guide debuted in 1868, and then Henry Chadwick (a.k.a. "The Father of Baseball") became its editor in 1869—that most historic year of the first all-professional baseball team, the Cincinnati Red Stockings. This is the first 1869 De Witt's example that we've ever even seen, let alone handled. PR covers with interior vintage tape reinforcements. The well-preserved interior pages are clean with slight rippling.
