The title of this book is The Real Billy Sunday - The Life and Work of Rev. William Ashley Sunday, the Baseball Evangelist. He was a powerful leader in the fundamentalist movement and had significant influence in early 20th Century American politics, (Scopes trial-prohibition-and more). Since the book was written in 1914, these events of course aren't covered. But in our present position in history his influences are now evident and the debate as to whether they were positive or negative might still be going on.



It is written by Elijah P. Brown.


It has 285 pages of text, notes, references, illustrations,  etc. 








The book is a hard cover in good condition. No marks, underlining or highlighting in the text. Binding is firm, pages intact, no creases or cracks in the spine. Published by Revell.


The note on the inside page I included in the photographs indicate this was given as a gift in 1916, while 'Mr . Sunday was here'.  The picture inside the book appears to be signed.  I have tried to determine whether or not the signature was printed with the photo when the book was published, or if it was personally autographed. I am not an expert in this field and it seems to be authentic to my untrained
