Histories are not always interesting, but the history of Essex County Cricket Club, the first ever written, is so full of violent changes of fortune and outstanding personalities that it is a book of sustained interest, of much humour and some sadness. Its author played for the county during ten of its most eventful years. Renewed life is given to many great matches, forgotten except by those who saw or played in them. Triumph and failure march side by side in a romantic history of a famous club whose playing members included Kortright, Perrin, Douglas, Mead, Nichols, and Farnes. Prompt dispatch.
