About This Item

New York: Doubleday & Company, 1977. First edition of Pele's autobiography. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated. Presentation copy, inscribed by Pele on the half-title page, "To Clark good luck Pele." Some light dampstaining, very good in a very good dust jacket. Jacket photograph by Alex Gotfryd. Written with Robert L. Fish. While kicking a ball through the dusty streets of his Brazilian hometown, young Edson Arantes do Nascimento was given the nickname Pele so casually that no one remembers its meaning. Today, the name is famous worldwide as belonging to history's greatest soccer player. Here, in Pele's own words, is his incredible life story: his five goals in the last two games of the 1958 World Cup at the tender age of 17, his glory years with his Brazilian club FC Santos, his role in four World Cup tournaments, his comeback as a member of the storied New York Cosmos, and his lifelong role as goodwill ambassador for the world's favorite sport.
