The first attempt to publish a comprehensive handbook to the game which, for the first time, laid out in alphabetical order the technical terms, major names of clubs and competitions and other football jargon that is so vital to understanding the game. Includes references to many little-known clubs and lesser profiled players. With a preface by George Allison, the former Arsenal manager.

First Edition. 8vo. 320pp. Frontispiece, 28 plates. Original red cloth, slightly rubbed. Foxing to page edges. A good copy of this ground-breaking book.

"A gem of a volume likely to yield an unknown snippet or two even to the most knowledgeable historian."  [Seddon, J1]
