Yeah I had a sandwich with it in on Holiday, very nice.
Got a nice find today in a 2nd hand store - a 1924 print of "Cricket - Old and New" by A.C. MacLaren.
What makes it even nicer is that according to the stamp inside the front page, it was previously the property of the Melbourne Cricket Club, and somebody has taken the time, in beautiful copperplate hand writing to write an index of references to players on one of the blank pages on the back.
The frontispiece is the same pic of Archie Mac as Haigh used on the front cover of "Silent Revolutions", and the subtitle is "A Straight Talk to Young Players"! The downside is that its definitely seen better days, and is now fragile, although not quite falling to pieces...

I thought I would share what I think might just be the greatest misprint in a cricket book
This comes from Don Bradman's My Cricketing Life published in 1938

I must have missed it when I read the book, it was pointed out by Crciket book dealer Christopher Saunders
He was "glinding" was he?
I never realised that when Jardine called for leg-theory bowling, that meant bowling in mini-skirts...
