Included are the imaginative reconstruction of the 1882 England and Australia Test match to Cardus’s descriptions of village cricket, accounts of the great players that Cardus watched play (from Donald Bradman and Harold Larwood to Wally Hammond) to examples of his ‘Shastbury’ writings.
Chosen and introduced by Sir Rupert Hart-Davis, Cardus on Cricket features a range of writings from ‘Cricket’, ‘Days in the Sun’, ‘The Summer Game’, ‘Good Days’, ‘Australian Summer’ and ‘The Manchester Guardian’.

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.
