1 Leonetti, Mike. Forward by Frank Mahovlich. THE GAME WE KNEW: HOCKEY IN THE SIXTIES.
Vancouver Raincoast 1998 1551921987 / 9781551921983 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good Harold Barkley, photograpy. 
118 pp, 11 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with colour photographs. "The 1960s was a decade of major transition for the National Hockey League. Bitter rivalries were the order of the day, especially between Canada's two teams, as the Leafs and the Canadiens accounted for nine of the decade's Stanley Cup winners. The league doubled in size as new teams in St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Oakland brought hockey to new fans throughout North America. Aging superstars like Maurice 'Rocket' Richard passed the torch to the next generation of stellar players such as Bobby Orr. Hall of Famers like Johnny Bower, Dave Keon, Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe, Jean Beliveau, Terry Sawchuk and Glenn Hall were at their peak. Through it all, innovative action photographer Harold Barkley was rinkside, recording for posterity the greatest moments of hockey in the sixties. To his stunning colour photographs, accomplished hockey writer Mike Leonetti adds intriguing, fact-filled captions and comments. (A) treasure trove for dedicated hockey fans as well as newcomers to the game." Previous owner's place, Christmas date and signature on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, some light creasing at top edge, light rubbing.

Stoddart, Toronto, 1999, first edition. 
238 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 077373189X B&w photographs. INSCRIBED ON HALF TITLE PAGE: "TO D__ A LONGTIME BRUINS FAN YOURS IN HOCKEY BRIAN MCFARLANE". In 1924, Charles Adams of Brookline, Massachusetts, journeyed to Montreal to s ee the Stanley Cup finals and fell in love with the game. When two new NHL franchises became available that same year, Adams snapped one up for $15,000 and set up shop in Boston. The new team was dubbed the Boston Bruins. The B r uins have been one of the most intimidating and most successful NHL teams ever since. They won their first Stanley Cup in 1928, four short years after their initial game, and have since won another four Cups. Dozens of Hall of Famers and fan fa vo rites have donned t he brown, black, and gold, legends like Eddie Shore, Fern Flaman, Dit Clapper, Milt Schmidt, Phil Esposito, Brad Park, Derek Sanderson, Ray Bourque, and the incomparable Bobby Orr. From the lunch bucket teams of the World War I era to Don Cherry's Big Bad Bruins of the 1970s, to the recent Bruin resurgence under Pat Burns and his stable of young stars, the Bruins have endured as one of the more popular of the Original Six teams, and one of the most successful hockey fra nch ises of all time." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine; previous owner's small Christmas notation and signature in ink on half-title page. Dust jacket has minor rubbing and minor edge wrinkling. Very Good+/Very Good+
