Ted Dexter Declares - Ted DexterStanley Paul, 1966, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good - in Good DJ. Ex-Army library with usual marks. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned.
Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “Dexter captained England when he was 26. Previously he had captained Sussex, Cambridge and his school Radley. All this was not attained because of a driving ambition to succeed in cricket — for Dexter loves all sport — but simply because he was determined to reach the top in at least one sport. His story makes fascinating reading, an illuminating account of modern cricket that will perhaps stir the ghosts in the Long Room at Lords, and cause today’s followers of the game to sit up and take notice just as they do when the lordly Ted smites one mightily beyond mid-off to the boundary.”
