One of the best-known poems in the (US) English language, Thayer's Casey at the Bat gets the royal treatment in this 2001 Caldecott Honor Book. Imagined as an old-time newspaper cum scrapbook by illustrator Christopher Bing, the double-page spreads (too large for my scanner...sorry!) are supplemented with news clippings, catalog pages, baseball cards, currency and other 19th century ephemera. Additionally, this copy is signed and dated by the illustrator on the front endpaper's printed bookplate. In Fine condition in a fine dust jacket.
