DESCRIPTION

For sale here is a copy of The Empire's Cricketers by A. Chevallier Taylor published by the Fine Arts Society in 1905 and very recently superbly rebound in red with the title in gilt to the front board and the spine.

This publication was originally issued in 12 weekly parts and comprises a total of 48 lithographic prints by Chevallier Taylor of Golden Age Cricketers produced from photographs by the pioneering sports photographer George Beldam who also also provided the descriptive text that accompanies each drawing.

The photographs should provide a good idea of what's on offer.

The book is folio sized and includes all the important Golden Age Cricketers - C. B. Fry, W. G. Grace etcetera.

At the height of the market I saw copies of this book in dealers catalogues for prices in excess of £4,000.00.

As is very commonly the case with this book the title page is absent but otherwise the 48 prints and the descriptive text are in fine condition.

A superb item.

Postage is by Royal Mail Special Delivery and as the weight of the parcel is more than 2 kilos the price will be £27.50.  If ordering from abroad please email us before buying to check methods of payment and postage rates.
