The Boys Own Book of Outdoor Games and Pastimes

edited by P F Warner

From the CRICKET section foreword: “Cricket ought to be to English boys what Habeas Corpus is to Englishmen. It is, indeed, a game; but it is something more than a game. It is an institution, a passion, a part of the people's life. It has got into the blood of the Nation, and from Lord's to Sydney, from Invercargill to Demerara, it is played with eagerness and joy.”

Illustrated with photographs (4), diagrams (32), prints (15).
