MW Luckin wrote a couple of histories of Sth Afr cricket Vol 1 was 1876-1915 -Vol 2 was 1919-1927. There was one by Eric Litchfield - Cricket Grand Slam which deals with the 1970 tour
A great book about Sth Afr cricket which we have reviewed in the cricket book section is Basil D'Oliverira by Peter Oborne
Unless I have £170 (Cheapest price on Amazon market place) hanging around, Litchfield's book will have to wait for now.
