American Tennis - The Story of a Game by Parke Cummings


"This big, beautiful book is for all who watch or play the game. It gives you in fascinating pictures and text the story of tennis in this country from its beginnings in 1881 at the exclusive Newport Casino down to the exciting present. It not only chronicles the history of the game and its celebrities, but tells you about the changes that have occurred in American life, dress and manners as tennis developed into a sport played and enjoyed by millions."  World Tennis magazine, August 1957
