Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled along edges. Some light spotting to the reverse ½-title and title page otherwise bright and tight.

From the cover: “The book recalls the innovative bowlers, the players of prodigious ability and the mercurial all-rounders. Players who have influenced cricket legislation, the lasting impact that Test captains have had on the development of the game, and the batsmen who have been notable stroke creators are all described. Allen Synge leaves nothing uncovered. He gives a fascinating account of the money motive behind cricket, famous umpires and their controversies, and the leading fashion setters in equipment and headgear.”
