Jack Hearne - Wheelwrights to Wickets. The Story of the Cricketing Hearnes.  Foreword by E W Swanton

Boundary Books, 1996. Quarto, soft-back, 171pp, many illus.  Plus fold-out family tree. 

Jack Hearne traces his family history through its thirteen first-class cricketers from early village games to Test matches at Lord’s and Sydney.

“A book so outstanding that one has no hesitation in suggesting that here is a suitable candidate for the Cricket Society book of the year . . . the book is well indexed and illustrated, a large number of photographs appearing in print for the first time . . . the English cricket book of 1996.” Robert Brooke

“Undoubtedly one of the outstanding cricket books of recent times.” ACSH

“This book is the fruit of long research, well written and illustrated, indeed a social document.” The Cricketer

“It is a pleasant saga about steadfast men, and will reactivate the old question as to which was the greatest cricket family. Numerically the Hearnes would seem to have it.” Wisden Cricket Monthly

“This saga could scarcely have been more romantic had they been village blacksmiths . . . splendidly researched . . . unhackneyed selection of photographs. Excellent value.” Cricket Society Journal

Standard Edition, softback - copies available at £8.   Deluxe Limited Edition of only 50 copies, bound in quarter bonded-leather and signed by E W Swanton and Jack Hearne. Out of Stock
