    I have read it also, but many years ago and I can remember it was nothing special. I also read his account of the 1903/04 Ashes tour, and I really enjoyed it
    You know it makes sense.

    Warner did write the only ever account of the 4-1 victory by South Africa over his side in 1905/06 which first brought out their quartet of googly bowlers - a fascinating and sadly neglected byway of cricket history. As I say Warner was no Percy Fender with his pen but his book is all there is and therefore important.

    Just one now, I got the 1948 yesterday. I may not bother with the '46 for a while though as it's usually quite pricey and doesn't actually report on any cricket except for the three 'Victory' Tests.

    I doubt if I'll venture back before 1940 as they're already taking up four shelves, it's hard enough finding room for the new one every year.

    Fredfertang is the man to talk to on all matters Wisden.

    No. 2 and No. 7 appear to be the same book.

    You are right. I just cut and pasted them from my excel spread sheet that catalogues my books. Since I have two copies of that book, it shows up twice.

    Well spotted though

    PS : Is anyone interested in that book. I have some other books that I may want to sell.
