The classic work on the various techniques involved in cricket, with character-sketches of the players and much interesting historical information. The author was assisted considerably in the preparation and writing of this monumental work by his close friend, C.B. Fry.

All aspects and avenues of the game are covered, with chapters on public school and Cambridge University cricket by W.J. Ford, Oxford University cricket by Thomas Case, and county cricket by various writers.
