This work represents an important contribution to the history of medieval books, providing full scholarly description and discussion of an otherwise very little known category of written artefact in quasi-book form, but one that the 60-odd identified examples suggest was relatively common. This volume will be of interest not only to medieval book-historians and codicologists but also to historians of medieval science and of the liturgy, and of medieval written culture and cultural practice more broadly. Although a large proportion of the volume takes the form of a catalogue, the information and explanatory material presented in the introduction to the catalogue as a whole and to each of the sections into which the catalogue is divided give the volume the coherence and value of a historical and codicological survey of this form of artefact, the kind of texts they contained, and how and by whom they were made and used. The way in which the catalogue is structured in chronological and thematic sections, each with their own introduction, also contributes to enhance this aspect of the volume.

Crack of the Bat is a comprehensive and entertaining look at the most famous icon in the history of baseball, the "Louisville Slugger" bat. It includes the evolution of bats from pioneer wagon tongues to the sleek aluminum models of today. It examines the amazing physics involved in hitting a baseball, where .003 seconds means the difference between a home run and a foul ball. It tells the fascinating history of the still family-owned Hillerich & Bradsby Company, which in just 80 years went from making butter churns to making seven million bats a year. Reinforcing this are dozens of stories about the bats themselves, and the personal idiosyncracies of the most famous hitters in baseball history, including Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn, Cal Ripken Jr. and Derek Jeter. The book explains why the players picked the bats they did, the amazing lengths they would go to to protect them, and how valuable these bats have now become in the hands of collectors. Illustrated with hundreds of archival photographs, baseball decals, and icons, many in color, this book will become as much a cherished keepsake as some of the bats it describes.

K.C. AT THE BAT is a fun, new story that follows the tradition of the original 19th-century verse, "Casey at the Bat." It tells of a baseball game between teams representing two fictional neighboring towns, somewhere in a rural part of Texas. The storyline is not limited to a mere half-inning of play. In K.C. AT THE BAT, author David W. Coleman projects the magic of the original "Casey" format over a full, nine-inning ballgame. It is a lively and entertaining account of baseball action in the familiar, iambic pentameter form. K.C. AT THE BAT is a work that can be shared by both adults and children. It is a book that a parent can read aloud to a child, that a child can learn to read on his or her own, and that a child can also read aloud back to his or her parents. K.C.AT THE BAT, while entertaining, can also be used to broaden the vocabulary – and thus, the knowledge – of any child reader, or even an adult!
