The first mention of cricket in a book was in the English version of Giovanni Florio's Italian dictionary in 1598. Collecting cricket books and cricketana has long been a popular pastime, and some fine collections have been built up, not least that of the MCC at Lord's. Rare cricket books (Nyren, Lambert, Bentley) are keenly sought, as are signed books and Ashes memorabilia, especially from the Bodyline tour (1932/33). Other areas of interest are scorecards, cricket autographs and tour brochures.
