Oh yes, I have that. It was done in a limited edition deluxe version as well (I don't have that (yet!)). Also Goldman did one of the most dull books ever written "Cricketers and the Law" which is just a list (pretty much, literally) of English lawyers who have played cricket.
Imaginatively titled "South Africa's Cricketing Lawyers"What was the SA one called?
Rest In Peace Craigos
Could one of you most erudite chaps please drop a hint as to which of the books on Victor Trumper is best?
"To go to a cricket match for nothing but cricket is as though a man were to go into an inn for nothing but drink." - Neville Cardus
"What do they know of cricket who only cricket know?" - CLR James
Ten Great Innings and Ten Great Bowlers - two great books, both by one Ralph Barker and both of which I'd seen recommended on this thread. I really enjoyed them and highly recommend them both.
Help me lads - this nasty barrister is chasing me all over this Forum - could you sort him out for me
Be interesting if you two have met in real life!
http://www.cricketweb.net/cricketbooks/4897.php. I have also done a review of the Peter Sharpham version (Trumper : The Definitive Biography) which I think is in the backlog that Arch is putting up slowly. Both worth tracking down, but forget the Fingleton one (not often you say that).
I like the Mallett one as well, but on the Fingo one, it is not so much a bio, but more a tribute to the great man, some of it I can almost quote word for word, it has stayed with me, so a hard one to dismiss (much like the author )
