Description

Legendary tennis players William Tilden (d.1953) and Rene Lacoste (d.1996) have etched these cut signatures which are affixed to the fly leaf of the 1925 Match Ply and Spin of the Ball hard bound book written by Tilden/Merrihew. Published by American Lawn Tennis, the 355-page work remains in excellent condition with tight binding, crisp inner pages and relatively clean covers with Tilden's gilt facsimile emblazoned on the front. The black steel-tip fountain pen endorsements grade ("8-9") and are proceeded by a lengthy inscription in an unknown hand. Full photo LOA from JSA.
