Publisher's review label
Jerome Holtzman, R.I.P.
Here's a review copy label for Holt & Rinehart's publication of No Cheering in the Press Box, edited by Jerome Holtzman, who passed away last week at age 81. Holtzman was a long-time baseball writer for Chicago newspapers and was baseball's first historian. He also introduced a new statistic to baseball--the Save. This book was a review copy and contained the label and also a press release about the book. A favored icon of many booksellers, the owl, is the only graphic for this publisher's review copy ephemera.
