In Search of Cricket - J. M. Kilburn

Pavilion, 1990, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Heavily faded at the spine of the DJ. Pages very gently age-tanned.

From the cover: “ J.M. Kilburn’s lyrical ‘pilgrimage through the cricketer’s England’ contains much evocative and timeless description, in which he conveys the rich diversity of England’s cricketing scenes, from the majesty and calm of Worcester and the cheerful beauty of Kent to the hard, unyielding strength of Yorkshire. There are perceptive portraits of Sutcliffe and Leyland, a warm and affectionate tribute to Jack Hobbs on his retirement from the game, and expert reporting of county and Test cricket, including the double centuries by Ponsford and Bradman at the Oval in 1934 and the South Africans’ first ever Test victory in England, at Lord’s the following year. “ Green boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. In the Pavilion Library series.
