Diamonds Are A Man's Best Friend

An ode to major league legends, Ogden Nash's famous poetry collection (originally published in 1949 by Sport magazine) celebrates the greatest baseball players of the 19th and early 20th century with newfound energy through illustrations by C. F. Payne.

With his signature wordplay and brevity, Nash muses about 24 captivating characters in individual four-line poems. Each poem is accompanied by colorful biographical notes written by Nash's daughter, Linell Nash Smith. A masterful mix of poetry and pictures, each athletic spread brings bygone players to life in this updated classic for a new generation of devoted fans. Printed in Italy.
