The Lost Art of Baseball Humor is an off-beat, annotated collection of humorous 19th Century baseball writing, embellished with period baseball illustrations and cartoons, plus little-known tidbits of historical information. Marvel how baseball writing evolved to include elements of slang, sarcasm, wit, and faux erudition, all intended to interest the reader through humor. Within these pages are the writings of Charles Dryden, O.P. Caylor, Ren Mulford, Leonard Washburne, and many others who plied their craft anonymously. And though these writing styles have faded away like so much dust on the base paths, the pages herein contain numerous samples to ponder for baseball historians and casual fans alike. Nuf Ced!
