First edition, number 174 of 900 copies (with a further 100 issued signed), of this profusely illustrated survey of the history of cricket and its present state across the world, published to coincide with a triangular Test series between England, Australia and South Africa to celebrate imperial bonds, a book that thus "seems to embody with confidence the notion of cricket as a symbol of imperial strength" (Bateman, Cricket, Literature and Culture, p. 129).
