South African Cricket Annual 1952 - 53 (Volume 2)

by Chettle, Geoffrey A. (editor and compiler)

Condition: See description

(Durban: Knox Printing Co., [1953]). 180 x 120 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. 256; plates; photographs; some advertisements. Wrappers a bit scuffed and slightly creased; backstrip slightly worn at head; earlier owner's name signed on first page; some foxing to edges and outermost leaves. 'Any doubts concerning the need for a publication of this type have long since been dispelled by the world-wide demand for the 1951-52 issue. Literally hundreds of letters from enthusiasts throughout the Union and the Rhodesias bore eloquent testimony of the public desire for an annual record of our cricket activities. That in itself was a source of great encouragement, but what was really amazing was the reception given to the "baby" of all Annuals by readers overseas. ... South African cricket, thanks to the wonderful efforts of Cheetham and his "Boys", has been lifted out of the post-war doldrums and, having shared the spoils with the Might of Australia, has attained a standard hitherto unequalled in our association with the game.' The five cricketers of the year are Russell Endean, Jackie McGlew, Hugh Tayfield, John Waddington, and Jack Cheetham. .
