Boundary Books, 1990. Luxurious full leather/gilt, all edges gilt, marbled end-papers, silk ribbon marker - a magnificent production. Signed by John Arlott in a Limited Edition of 200 copies.
This long awaited Arlott autobiography was intended to be the first part covering the years 1914 to 1958 but his ill-health and untimely death prevented a second volume. Policeman, poet, BBC producer, book-collector, wine connoisseur, journalist, writer and commentator extraordinary - the richness of a full life is told with characteristic modesty.
“A welcome and absorbing volume of autobiography.” The Cricketer
