2nd Edition The Billiard Encyclopedia –
An Illustrated History of the Sport

2nd Edition The Billiard Encyclopedia image
Fully illustrated deluxe hardcover with dust jacket published in 1996. There have been three editions of this publication – the first edition was published in 1994 and quickly sold out. The co-authors then added quite a bit of new material and the 2nd Edition was released two years later. The 3rd Edition was self-published in 2008, and printed in China. Of these three editions, the 2nd Edition published by Blue Book Publications, Inc. and printed in America is easily the best and most deluxe book. No expense was spared in its construction, and the printing company showcased it for years in its main conference room with a spotlight on it! The 100 lb. paper was custom ordered from Austria, special inks were used in the printing, and the binding alone took two weeks to complete. The original price on the 2nd Edition was $139.95, and this edition has been sold out for over a decade. The publisher has discovered a small quantity of unsold copies with shrinkwrapping and in the original special die cut cardboard wrappers! These are truly time capsule books with no damage or wear, and are only available from the publisher.

Special price - $125.00! Consider this book an investment!
