condition: good
size / dimensions: 5 1/4 x 4 inches
This 10 cent booklet from 76 years ago is 30 pages long and divided into several sections: General Rules, and rules for pitching, hitting, strikes, base running, dead ball, and guidelines for umpires.

Inside the cover page is a detailed diagram of laying out a baseball field, with specific dimensions.

There’s also a section for owners on financing, player protection, and others.

The last pages focus on the Finer Points of Baseball for each of the nine positions.

A couple of ads are the the inside outside back cover, one for Louisville Slugger bats and another for Coca-Cola.

It’s a small booklet ( 5 1/4 x 4 inches) with very tiny print, but if you have good eyes or glasses, or a magnifying glass, it would be an interesting look at how baseball rules have evolved over 75 years.

As you can see from the photos, the booklet is in very good shape.
