Editorial Reviews

ARBA
meticulous and thorough...a wonderful cross-referencing tool that is recommended for any baseball collection
Library Journal
This is the most comprehensive bibliography of baseball literature available, updating and expanding Anton Grobani's Guide to the Literature of Baseball (1975). The 21,000 citations are arranged by subject classifications. There are sections on the World Series, baseball cards, business aspects, the minor leagues, each of the teams, and a biographical section covering those connected with the game. Annotations are provided for many entries. There is an author index, title index, and information on obtaining difficult to locate material, including addresses. Based on research at the National Baseball Library in Cooperstown, N.Y., this work by a professional bibliographer will be the cornerstone of baseball research for the next decade. Dennis Dillon, Univ. of Texas Libs. at Austin

Baseball claims to be America's game, and it is difficult to argue against that fact when presented with this bibliography of more than 8,000 sources relating to the sport. Covering books, journals, and documents, this work updates the author's first baseball bibliography published in 1986, which covered works published from the nineteenth century through 1984. Similar in format to the original, this supplement includes articles about a wide range of baseball topics, such as the history of the game, baseball in art and literature, rules, equipment, the business of baseball, little league and other youth organizations, and baseball in other nations. Nearly one-half of the work consists of references to biographical sources, both for individual players and for collections of baseball biographies. The work attempts to be comprehensive, citing sources as varied as "Baseball Card Monthly", "Sports Illustrated", "Architectural Digest", and the "Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association". While the sources indexed have all been published since January 1985, they discuss topics and personalities throughout the history of the game. Because of this approach, a reader can identify sources relating to Bo Jackson, Shoeless Joe Jackson, and Reggie Jackson on successive pages This work will be essential for all baseball scholars and should be acquired by those libraries that make use of the original edition. Libraries that do not require a comprehensive bibliography on the sport may be able to make do with the other indexes already in their collections.
