Frank Armstrong Captain of the Nine. Matthew M. COLTON.

Frank Armstrong Captain of the Nine.

New York: Hurst & Company, [1913]. Hardcover. Illustrations by Arthur O. Scott. Small 8vo. Green/gray cloth with blue and orange lettering and blue, orange and white pictorial stamping. 313pp. Halftone frontispiece, 3 full-page halftone illustrations as called for -- although "List of Illustrations" mistakenly cites illustration opposite page 312 and fails to note that opposite page 128. Very good. Almost rates "Near fine," as it's tight 'n' bright with just the faintest of rubbing at head and tail of spine. Item #42364

Superb first edition of the penultimate title in this 6-volume juvenile series published between 1911 and 1914. The front board graphic is particularly dramatic and handsome -- one batter caught mid-swing while another slides in amidst a cloud of dust. An exceptional copy.
