Notes

Signed limited edition, number 100 of 100 copies signed by Fred Perry, this copy additionally inscribed "A great history" by him. Perry was the winner of three consecutive championships at Wimbledon from 1934 to 1936. The book was produced to coincide with the centenary of the Lawn Tennis Championships. Rather appealingly, this is the hundredth copy of an edition of one hundred, to mark a hundred years of Wimbledon.
