A Cricket Pro's Lot

£9.99

Product description

Published by Edward Arnold in 1937, this hardback first edition is in a reasonable condition overall. Fred Root, the author, reminiscences on his experience as a Worcestershire bowler. A controversial book at the time, it gives a good insight into the life of a professional cricketer between the wars. There is no dustjacket. The orange cloth boards are faded and marked: there are two prominent marks on the front board. The binding is firm. The text block as a whole is tanned, but this is commensurate with its age, and appears to be unmarked. There is a small, neat, pencil inscription on the first pastedown. There is a black and white frontispiece and 15 plates, plus an index.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
