2 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Histories, Both with Willard Mullin Covers.

Lot 457. 2 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Histories, Both with Willard Mullin Covers. In 1948, Hastings House published John Durant’s “The Dodgers: An illustrated story of those unpredictable bums.” Durant’s career included a stint as a sportswriter at “The New York Times.” Subsequently he contributed to the “Saturday Evening Post,” Reader’s Digest” and “Look” and wrote books on various sports subjects. In “The New York Times Book Review,” a writer described “The Story of Baseball,” Durant’s previous book, as “the best words-and-pictures history of the game ever assembled.” In his book on the Dodgers, he follows this successful format, with a photo on almost every one of its 154 pages. The hardcover book is vg+ to ex with a g-vg dust jacket. Published in 1953 by A. S. Barnes and Company, “The Artful Dodgers,” written by “Tom Meany and Others,” focuses on the Dodgers of the 1940s and early 1950s. The “Others” comprise writers Dick Young, Bill Roeder, Arch Murray, Roscoe McGowan, Harold Rosenthal, Harold C. Burr and Gus Steiger. Their subjects, in a series of 15 articles, include the Dodgers organization, manager Charley Dressen, the team’s coaches, and such players as Jackie Robinson, Duke Snider, Gil Hodges, Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Carl Furillo and Billy Cox. Mullin wrote the book’s foreword, which includes a cartoon of Meany and the Brooklyn Bum. The 246-page book is vg-ex in a g-vg dust cover. Both books are apparent first editions. Winning Bid $25.
