I Declare

by Cheetham, Jack

Condition: See description

(Cape Town: Howard Timmins, 1956). 8vo; original green boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xi + (i) + 227; plates. Dustwrapper torn and edgeworn, with loss; earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper; tape marks to endpapers; some moderate foxing and browning. Good. "The story of the 1955 South African Cricket Tour of England reads almost like a fairy tale. Two Tests down and three to go; it seemed for all the world that the Series was safely in the hands of the England Team. How the South African side levelled the Tests, and almost snatched a victory in the deciding match, is graphically told in this book. No one knows the background of this Tour better than the author, who has given more than just an insight into the matches played. The calls made upon the tourists off the field, travel incidents and all the inside happenings of their five-month tour, have been recounted in a forthright manner." .
