Title: A Pitcher's Story: Innings with David Cone

Author: Roger Angell
Publisher: Warner Books
Date: May 2001 First Printing
ISBN: 0-446-52768-8
Binding: Hardcover
Condition: Dust jacket-barely noticeable wear to back face. Book-no visible flaws.

Remarks: Front cover photo-Peter Griffith. Author photo-Joanne Savio. Baseball's best writer offers an extraordinarily candid and thorough exploration of the inner craft of pitching from one of the games best, David Cone. There is no big league pitcher who is more respected for his skill than David Cone. In his stellar career Cone has won multiple championships and countless professional accolades. Along the way, the perennial all-star has had to adjust to five different ballclubs, recover from a career-threatening arm aneurysm, cope with the lofty expectations that are standard for the game's highest paid players, and overcome a humbling three-month, eight-game losing streak in the summer of 2000. Cone granted exclusive and unlimited access to baseball's most respected writer, Roger Angell of The New Yorker. The result is just what baseball fans everywhere would expect from Angell: an extraordinary inside account of a superstar.

Title: My Husband Jimmie Rodgers

Author: Mrs. Jimmie Rodgers
Publisher: Country Music Fdn. Press Reprint
Date: 1975
ISBN:
Binding: Paper
Condition: Small stains on front/back covers; spine & front cover near spine creased; spine has two very small nicks; 3 previous owner stamps inside front cover; 1st page inside has Ernest Tubb Record Shop stamp; 1933 Christmas seal & tape residue; publisher's permission slip on 2nd page is unglued

Remarks: Introduction by Nolan Porterfield. My Husband, Jimmie Rodgers was the first book-length biography published about a country musician, and fittingly so. Songs that Rodgers popularized - "T for Texas", "Daddy and Home", "In the Jailhouse Now", "Miss the Mississippi" - are still a regular part of many country performers' repertoires. Despite a recording career that lasted only six years (1927-33) and ended with his death from tuberculosis, in many ways Jimmie Rodgers is very much still with us. For years, My Husband, Jimmie Rodgers (first published in 1935 ) offered the only detailed account of the life of this colorful and influential musician. My Husband, Jimmie Rodgers remains a fascinating firsthand account of this engaging, memorable musician now acknowledged as the Father of Country Music.
