One of the better books about Spurs, with good coverage of Arthur Rowe's famous "push and run" side that brought the League Championship title to White Hart Lane for the first time in 1950-51. This title was dedicated to John Arlott.
8vo. 224pp. Photographic frontis, 24 pages of photographs. Neat gift inscription in ink to front pastedown. Dust-wrapper, lightly rubbed. A very good copy.
