First in this edition. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “In presenting this collection of articles reprinted from Country Life and other publications, Raymond Brock has revived memories of bridge as it was played in the post-war years up to 1968. Harrison-Gray, universally known as ‘Gray’, was undoubtedly one of the greatest player-writers in the world of bridge and these articles display his skill in a style of writing with is both elegant and entertaining. Most of the hands are taken from actual play and have been analysed to bring out some practical instructive point, although instruction is not the primary object of articles to which were written for readers whose bridge standards were wide-ranging.”
