Fry's Grandson. gilt titles spine; The story of the man who captained England at cricket and was offered the throne of Albania. John Arlott wrote of him 'a most incredible man ... the most variously gifted Englishman of any age ... the pre-eminent all-rounder, not merely of his own age, but, so far as is measurable, of all English history: C.

Guild Books No. 245; published for British Publisher's Guild by Jonathan Cape; Scarce in pictorial dust jacket. "The detection of crime in an Indian village, in the period between the two World Wars, offered a peculiar problem: while it was relatively simple to identify the criminal, it was an extraordinarily difficult task to produce witnesses to testify to his guilt in court. For the intense and conflicting activities of the witnesses concerned laid them open to incalculable pressure.

privately published, Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire, 1983. Third Impression. Softcover (Saddle-stapled). Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: Denis Cheason. map to rear cover; From the author’s introduction: “I have used Rupert Brooke's beautiful poem 'The Old Vicarage, Grantchester,' as an excuse to visit and explore all the places he mentioned. Great changes have, of course, taken place since his time, but much of the beauty remains which I have tried to capture in the drawings. This most enjoyable of tasks has led me along quiet footpaths, around historic mansions, into quaint cottages and ancient, yet active churches. If I am honest, I must admit that my native Cambridgeshire does not possess the scenic beauty of many counties, especially those in the west and north, yet there is beauty here and an abundance of interest. You will have to seek it out though, and this is best done on foot. I have therefore mentioned the more interesting footpaths leading to and from each villag ... Read more

Pevensey Press, Cambridge, 1988. Third Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). As New/As New. Illustrator: Ernest Frankl (photo's.). endpapers decorated with green marbled pattern; The glories and treasures of Cambridge - some famous, others much less well-known than they should be - are so extraordinary that they need to be presented and assessed afresh for each successive generation. Indeed the ever­continuing creation of new colleges, buildings and institutions means that each generation, including very notably our own, has something novel to see and admire. It is the purpose of Michael Grant, formerly a Fellow of Trinity College, to show how the University and its various organisms have developed from their beginnings until now, and how people at Cambridge have lived and worked and been stimulated by what they saw around them. The same point is made by Emest Frankl's photographs; no one who sees them can fail to appreciate that Cambridge, in addition to all its other gifts and qualities, is ... Read more

Oleander Press, Cambridge, 1977. First Edition. Hardcover (Printed Boards). As New/No Dust Jacket. Description of subject matter printed on insides of covers; The part played by the Cambridge press in rallying and reflecting local public opinion on local and national issues is discussed by Michael Murphy clearly and judiciously, and at the right level of selected detail. Cambridge was not only an important country town but also one of the two university centres, and its reactions therefore possess an especial significance in terms of national opinion. Moreover, the career of Benjamin Flower, editor of the Cambridge Intelligencer, was of national importance. Flower, who has been half-forgotten since his own day, now emerges as an important early Radical and as one of the great pioneers of English journalism, who spoke to a national readership from a local base. In Michael Murphy's words, at the height of the French Revolution in 1793 Flower 'set out to instruct public opinion by reporting parliame ... Read more
