Buster Harvey died on November 25, 2007, of cancer. Promotional business card for the book laid in. 343 pages (including acknowledgements), illustrated. Light general wear.

11 Fosty, George and Darril, with contributions by John Jelley SPLENDID IS THE SUN, The 5,000 Year History of Hockey

After six years of research and writing, the authors give us a history of hockey that is "the story of human cultural interaction and geographic migration. It is a game that spread worldwide from its original home in ancient Mesopotamia, along the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, moving over the centuries across much of the ancient and modern world. As human society developed, the game of hockey became closely associated with practices of religion. At one point, ancient hockey and religion merged. The result being that these two disparate elements of ancient society became part and parcel of one. Ancient hockey became a celebration of religion. Later it became the game of legends, a celebration of man and his gods." This copy inscribed and signed by George Fosty, on title page. Inscription reads "To Susanne./All the best/--George". Fosty has also signed his name in full at bottom of title page. Laid in is a handwritten letter dated 5/9/04 on Stryker-Indigo memorandum/letterhead from Fosty to the aforementioned Susanne, with a brief mention of her company's possible distribution of the book, and indicating that he will call her to discuss the matter further. 261 pages. Small section of gloss lifted from top left corner of front cover, light edge and corner wear. Internally tight and clean.
