1 in stock
A splendid book.
A panoramic view of cricket from its embryonic stirrings on the nursery slopes of the Weald and Wessex, through three centuries of growing sophistication and often tumultuous events, right up to the one-day limited-over prototype, the Packer revoution, the game today and to come. The book looks at the stages and transitions in the game’s development, the colourful personalities of every era, as well as the equally colourful grounds and stadia. Also included are the accoutrements of the game – ceramics, presentation plates, cartoons, cigarette cards, labels, buckles and beer mats.
