It's not quite 19th century but since someone already posted a picture of the 1902 "Church book" I thought I would post some related items. McVey and Waddell are the size of the book itself; the schedule is like a pamphlet.

I continue to be impressed Michael. I never owned any of Church supplements, calendar’s or schedules. Very nice to see them .

Hopefully 1901 is close enough to count in this thread - this is my only vintage baseball book. Featuring John McGraw on the cover this was apparently written by Fred "Crazy" Schmidt. (https://thebaseballbloggess.com/2021...-crazy-schmit/)

Luckily, I have the piece of paper that is missing from the front cover. If anyone knows a good restorer who would reattach it, please let me know.

The book measures 4.5" x 6.5".

Love it and have never seen it before. It is also unlisted in Grobani's Guide to Baseball Literature.

Great thread guys! I'll join in: after the 1890 season the Players League was seeking to strengthen themselves for the then anticipated 1891 season. To do this they dropped Buffalo and negotiated the purchase of Cincinnati(who had been in the NL in 1890). This is the actual document consummating that sale for $40,000. Unfortunately, shortly thereafter Albert Spalding convinced the Players League backers to throw in the towel and after somewhat lengthy court proceedings Cincinnati ended back in the NL in 1891. One looking at annual records would assume they never left but for a short period of time they did.
