From the cover: “ROY WEBBER is the world’s leading cricket statistician and is familiar to every B.B.C. listener and viewer.
It is now ten years since Roy Webber first published his collection of Cricket Records, and so much has happened in the world of cricket statistics over the period of the 1950’s that a new and enlarged edition is vitally necessary. This book brings the records up to the end of the 1960 season in England, with a postscript on later events.
It is difficult to speak with moderation of the immense labour and knowledge which have gone into the making of this large book. It is the ‘Bible’ of the cricketer and a necessary work in even a small sports library, and it is used as a standard by all authorities.”
