Ihsan Taylor…a trove of artifacts and photographs that skillfully conveys the evolution of the game and how it has been chronicled and embraced…The book spans nearly two centuries: baseball's genesis in the late 1700s; its expansion in the late 19th century; the "glory years" of the early 20th century; the period between World War I and the Great Depression; and from World War II to the "wonder years" of the '50s and '60s. Each section is anchored by an essay outlining the period in broad strokes, and copious sidebars help round out the details. The pages are busy, but never scattershot.
