Description

Arthur Mailey’s classic autobiography, first published in 1958, is a wry and engaging account by a talented cricketer from a very different era – full of zest, varied, quick, shifting the point of attack, sometimes extravagant, frequently brilliant and always thoughtful.

For fifty years, Arthur Mailey played and watched first-class cricket. During his Test career he played against many of the greats, and on one notable occasion dismissed his idol, Victor Trumper, to his immediate regret: ‘I felt like a boy who had killed a dove.’

10 for 66 and All That is a reminder of the glory days of cricket – amateurs and professionals, Bradman, Noble and Trumper batting, and Barnes, O’Reilly and Fleetwood-Smith with the ball.

A Lovely read.

Hardback with a splendid dust jacket.

1958

IMPORTANT

When I collect Wisdens I am often asked to take boxes of general cricket books – as you may or may not know my knowledge is of Wisdens so I take these books by honestly telling people that I have no idea of their worth and I do not pay for them – so on here I list them at what is hopefully a price less than they are sold elsewhere (please correct me on any if I am wrong) and if you decide to buy any, EVERY penny will go to The Alzheimers’ Society. A charity very close to my heart.

The postage you pay will go towards the postage cost – but if a book sells for £10 and postage is £1, then £10 will go to the AS. If a book is available for £0, then the WCC will donate £1 to the AS.

***Please be patient when you buy, I will get them out as quickly as I can.
