[Baseball] Longbrake, Arthur. (1884 - 1963)
Brother Noah gave out checks for rain
Philadelphia: Jos. Morris. 1907.
"Goliath was struck out by David, A base hit was made on Abel by Cain, And the Prodigal Son made a great home-run. Brother Noah gave checks out for rain."
Vintage sheet music for "The Greatest Baseball Song," the cover featuring an inset photographof Ed Morton and a cartoonish and stereotypical scene of African American men playing baseball in a field, a church in the background. 14 x 10 1/2". 5 pp. Front cover lightly spotted along the top but very good, separation along spine along upper third, page 3/4 small chip to edge, final leaf/rear wrapper lightly stained and with a sizeable repaired tear. A good copy of Longbrake's playful Biblical baseball allegory.
