From BR Bullpen

In 1940 and 1941, the American Sports Publishing Company, which had put out both the Spalding and Reach Guides since 1935, consolidated both into a single edition, called the Spalding-Reach Official Base Ball Guide.

The publications were big (470+ pages each) with an additional 64-page detachable Book of Official Baseball Rules. The Spalding-Reach Guide was discontinued after only two years. The Sporting News Baseball Guide was launched to replace the Spalding-Reach Guide in 1942.
