DESCRIPTION

ON OFFER HERE IS A COPY OF THE EMPIRE'S CRICKETERS BY A. CHEVALLIER TAYLOR PUBLISHED BY THE FINE ART SOCIETY IN 1905 AND RECENTLY SUPERBLY REBOUND IN BROWN LEATHER WITH THE TITLE AND RAISED BANDS TO THE SPINE.

 

ORIGINALLY ISSUED IN 12 WEEKLY PARTS THIS MAGNIFICENT BOOK COMPRISES A TOTAL OF 48 LITHOGRAPHIC PRINTS BY CHEVALLIER-TAYLOR OF GOLDEN AGE CRICKETERS PRODUCED FROM PHOTOGRAPHS BY THE PIONEERING SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHER GEORGE BELDHAM WHO ALSO PROVIDED THE DESCRIPTIVE TEXT THAT ACCOMPANIES EACH DRAWING.

 

I PERSONALLY MUCH PREFER THESE DRAWINGS TO THE SPY CARICATURES THAT WERE PRODUCED AROUND THE SAME TIME.

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHS SHOULD PROVIDE A GOOD IDEA OF WHAT'S ON OFFER.

 

THE BOOK IS FOLIO SIZED.

 

AS A CONSIDERABLE BONUS LOOSELY INSERTED AT THE FRONT OF THE BOOK ARE THREE EXTRA ORIGINAL TEXTS OF THE DESCRIPTIONS RELATING TO E.G.WYNYARD,A.J.HOPKINS AND JOE DARLING WHICH HAVE THEIR ORIGINAL SIGNATURES LAID DOWN.

AT  THE HEIGHT OF THE MARKET I SAW CPOIES OF THIS BOOK IN DEALERS' CATALOGUES AT PRICES IN EXCESS OF £4000.

THE BROWN LEATHER BINDING IS IN FINE CONDITION.

THE TITLE PAGE AND A SMALL NUMBER OF THE TEXT PAGES HAVE THE ODD BROWN MARK BUT NOTHING SERIOUS.

THE 48 PRINTS ARE ALL IN FINE CONDITION.

A SUPERB ITEM.

POSTAGE IS VIA ROYAL MAIL SPECIAL DELIVERY AND THE WEIGHT OF THE PARCEL WILL BE MORE THAN 2 KILOS.

IF ORDERING FROM ABROAD PLEASE EMAIL US BEFORE BUYING TO CHECK METHODS OF PAYMENT AND POSTAGE RATES.MANY THANKS.
