A Horseman Through Six Reigns: The Reminiscences Of A Royal Riding Master by Horace Smith (£28.00)Publisher: Odhams Press — 1955Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed and rubbed with loss at the spine ends and tips. Boards sunned at the margins. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Horace (‘Cadogan’) Smith—the man who taught the Queen to ride — is known and respected throughout what he himself calls the “Horsey” world. He has lived and worked among horses for three-quarters of a century, and has won prize after prize at major horse shows all over Britain, from the International Horse Show at Olympia downwards. As a dealer he has bought and sold nearly twelve thousand horses during his lifetime. And as a judge of horses Horace Smith has been — and still is — in great demand at all the leading shows in Britain and many in Europe and America as well.

There is a strong sense of nostalgia about his brightly written autobiography. In these pages he transports the reader back through the years to a world that is no more, picturing spacious, leisurely days that had a charm all their own.

The horse was the normal form of road transport when Mr. Smith’s career began in the last decade of Queen Victoria’s reign. He joined his father in the well-established family business of W. J. Smith Limited, Horse Dealers, when he was sixteen. And many are the fascinating stories he has to relate of the cut-throat competition in the horse trade in London at the turn of the century.”

A Manual of Clayshooting by Chris Cradock (£15.50)Publisher: London: B. T. Batsford Ltd. — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0713453087]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the reverse of the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 2nd printing, [First Published: 1983] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [90]; Diagrams [26];

From the cover: “Writing from a wealth of experience and a position of authority, Chris Cradock has produced a manual of techniques and hardware in clayshooting, comprehensive in scope and meticulous in detail. He has been involved with the sport for 60 years, and there are few aspects of its application both in Europe and the United States with which he is not familiar.

The book deals initially with modern shotguns and cartridges and the specifications of both for the various disciplines. There is then information on the try-gun, fitting and stock alterations. Buying a gun, suitable clothing and accessories are then discussed before the book covers the basics of the sport such as safety, stance and style. Shooting the various disciplines forms the basis of the next chapter. Much more general information is given in subsequent sections which deal with refereeing, shooting clubs, trap operation and control, coaching and maintenance. There is, finally, a chapter on the sport’s future.

In total, Chris Cradock has produced a work, both informative and readable, which will quickly establish itself as the reference manual for all those with an active interest in sport.”

In 1955 he became manager of Sheffield United and three years later, after inspiring a revival in the fortunes of the Bramall Lane club, he took up the appointment of manager of Aston Villa.

The Wizard and the Warrior: Leading with Passion and Power by Lee G. Bolman; Terrence E. Deal; (£14.50)Publisher: Jossey-Bass — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0787974137]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Front flap has a light vertical crease otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “Why A Book About Wizards And Warriors as models for leadership? Because, as Peter Drucker once said, everything you learned is wrong — at best, it is misleading and insufficient. You typically learn in school, workshops, and seminars that if you can manage the work and serve the people, you have what it takes. It's not true. Maybe you have enough stuff to be a pretty good manager, but it takes a lot more to be a good leader. The Wizard and the Warrior gives leaders the insight and courage they need to take risks on behalf of values they cherish and the people they guide. Great leaders must act both as wizard, calling on imagination, creativity, meaning, and magic, and as warrior, mobilizing strength, courage, and willingness to fight as necessary to fulfil their mission.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Pages deeply tanned by age. Previous owners inscription to ffep.Description: First in this edition. Illustrated with B&W photographs.

But he can also hold his own on any TV soccer panel, he is a qualified PE teacher and a member of Roger Bannister’s Sports Council. It is not surprising, then, to find him writing about his career in football with particular wit, perception and understanding. With the whole field of play in front of him, the goal-keeper sees all the sparkling moves and devastating mistakes — the latter, especially, tend to finish between his posts. Whether Bob is writing of his amateur days with Loughborough College, or the Cup and League Double with Arsenal, he puts you right into the game.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Allen Wade.

Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint. Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Dickie Bird’s retirement was an international event shown on millions of TV screens and covered in newspapers throughout the world. He is a household name, an eccentric, and one of the most loved and respected characters in world cricket. Here at last is his autobiography. The most famous cricket umpire of them all, Dickie has done that difficult job more skilfully than anyone else. Moreover he has done it in his idiosyncratic style and with the infectious humour which has endeared him to millions throughout the world, transcending his sport. Fiercely proud of his background as a Yorkshire miner’s son, his story follows his youth in Barnsley, his early days as a cricketer, through to his career as an umpire and his experiences of the international scene, all told with total honesty by this very private person. Throughout his life he has courted both controversy and comedy. This book is a mixture of forthright views on the game and those involved in it, compelling accounts of what it is like behind the scenes in cricket at the highest level, and hilarious stories, for which Dickie is so well known.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Michael Parkinson.

Spin Bowling by Ray Illingworth (£11.50)Publisher: Pelham Books — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0720711444]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper sealed in laminate and taped to the boardsDescription: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “Spin bowling is a battle of wits, says Ray Illingworth. In this book the former Yorkshire, Leicestershire and England off-spinner discloses the secrets which can help win that battle. He gives tips on length, flight, direction, spin, disguise, fitness, team work, and the tactics that can put batsmen under pressure — all drawn from more than a quarter of a century of first-class cricket, and 2,000 wickets. He sets out to show that spin bowling is an art which can be learnt: that hard work, concentration, and sound advice can turn an average bowler into a good spinner.

Although Illingworth includes valuable instruction for the beginner, his main target is the promising club or school player who wants to become the best. Whereas coaching manuals generally dwell on theory, this book concentrates on practical experience, which the author acquired against the world’s top batsmen. Spin Bowling provides every player with the chance to benefit from the knowledge of one of cricket’s greatest tacticians.”

From the flap: “This book aims to dispel a long standing fallacy — that New Zealand hotels lack colour, tradition, and a tale that tingles. To prove otherwise the author, a young Auckland journalist, travelled the country twice – from the backblocks of Northland to the Bluff, interviewing old identities, chasing threads of long-buried tales, and digging deep into newspaper files and library archives. Equipped then, with a roomful of research, he proceeded to breathe life into the bare facts.”Notes: Illustrated by Dennis Turner. Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

From the cover: “The autobiography of the famous twins, begun in Our Cricket Story, continues in this book with vivid first-hand accounts of the historic 1950-1953 cricket seasons.

After describing the West Indian Tour of England in 1950, the twins tell of the Test Trials in which they found themselves in opposition to each other, Alec being in the England XI and Eric in The Rest; then begins a detailed description of the M. C. C. Tour of Australia and New Zealand, in which the inside story of both players and play is given, fairly and without bias, providing a new angle on one of the most controversial tours in cricket history.

This is followed by such chapters as: The Springbok Tour, The 1952 Season Against the Indians, County Cricket, Benefit Season, The Aussies at Trent Bridge, The Lord’s Test, Old Trafford and Headingley and, of course, The Ashes — a graphic account of the England victory.

As in their previous book, the twins tell their story with directness and modesty characteristic of them, interlacing their narrative with humorous anecdotes and shrewd comment. Following On provides the cricket enthusiast with one of the most interesting and valuable books on modern cricket ever written, by two players who have helped to shape events in the past few years and who must certainly contribute largely to cricket of the future.”

Moreover he has done it in his idiosyncratic style and with the infectious humour which has endeared him to millions throughout the world, transcending his sport. Fiercely proud of his background as a Yorkshire miner’s son, his story follows his youth in Barnsley, his early days as a cricketer, through to his career as an umpire and his experiences of the international scene, all told with total honesty by this very private person. Throughout his life he has courted both controversy and comedy. This book is a mixture of forthright views on the game and those involved in it, compelling accounts of what it is like behind the scenes in cricket at the highest level, and hilarious stories, for which Dickie is so well known.”Tags: venkataraghavan gloucestershire nottinghamshire leicestershire worcestershire martyn-jenkins championships international o'shaughnessy championship javedmiandad intimidatory warwickshire all-rounder scarborough w-captaincy balderstone bicentenial illingworth association documentary preparation christopher personality churchgoing fairbrother rimmington azharuddin sidebottom livingston journalism richardson groundsmen vishwanath prudential lancashire ramprakash fredericks headingley electronic rutherford tournament champion's wooldridge birkenshaw recreation derbyshire groundsman retirement staincross d'oliveira

Old Cotswold by Edith Brill (£9.50)Publisher: David & Charles — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715342231]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Maps;

From the cover: “Lovers of the Cotswolds will be fascinated by the picture this book presents of days when that beautiful corner of England was undisturbed by the motor-car and the motor-road; days when George III drank the ‘brackish and bitter’ waters of Cheltenham Spa, when Painswick was an important industrial centre, and when the Yeomanry of Wotton-under-Edge, called out to suppress a riot, enjoyed a supper afterwards that cost £2 15s od. We read of the clothier’s teazel and how it was grown and used, and of woad being employed for other purposes than painting the skins of ancient Britons. There is a chapter about two eighteenth-century worthies of Chipping Campden — one of whom invented a steam tugboat that failed to work — and another about Burford in the coaching era. In the chapters called ‘Cotswold Woodlands’ and ‘The Tortworth Chestnut’ the writer vividly communicates her appreciation and understanding of trees and the countryside, and in ‘Cotswold Roofs’, ‘Cotswold Fulling-Mills’ and ‘Cotswold Papermakers’ she gives us the fruit of much thorough and imaginative research. An account of quarrying in the Cotswolds and the masons who worked the stone brings this most interesting and informative book to an end.”
