    It's a public service considering I'm probably the only person in the country who actually paid money for it.
    Not the only one - I too have a copy that I paid for. $1 at the Tamworth Rotary Book Fair about two years ago. And it was probaby over-priced at that

    I only have a few cricket books myself, but my Pop has an incredible collection of over 1500 books (and yes, every Wisden bar one) stored in his garage that he's bought over the past few years on the street, in shops and eBay. He actually keeps an up-to-date excel document of the books title, their cost and publish date -- I'll email him tonight and see if I can get a few pics of the collection.

    Archie - thats the very one.Only read the introduction so far,I'll have some time tonight to delve in to it.

    Aussie Flea - that collection sounds fantastic, I' only up to about fifty books. Photos would be well appreciated for a beginning collector. Does your Pop let you read those books?

    Couldn't get those pics tonight guys, I'll try again tomorrow.

    I haven't asked, but I'm pretty sure he'd let me borrow them.

    Haigh's few chapters in The Big Ship about the war between the Melbourne Cricket Club-SACA-The players and the State associations in 1905 is one of the most engrossing things on cricket I've read.

    In a veritable muffin of a second-hand bookstore out here in Grahamstown, I have picked up, among others, Tiger's Cricket Conquest, Lord Hawke's autobiography and, perhaps most impressively, the fourth volume of The Windsor Magazine, which includes "Cricketers I Have Met", the celebrated article which propelled Fry into literary eminence; a twelve-page dissertation by Ranji on the art of fielding; a feature story on the last-mentioned; and some cricketing anecdotes by Albert Gibson in a preview of Stoddart's 1897/98 tour.
    Cheers,
    Rodney Ulyate

    As all of its articles are now well out of copyright, I'll see about posting them some time.
