Often described as the greatest cricketer of all time, W. G. Grace started his long career in 1865, and is said to have revolutionised the sport. The last two decades before the First World War have been called the ‘Golden Age of Cricket’, and the period produced some great players and memorable matches, especially as organized competition at county and Test level developed.
In The Classic Guide to Cricket, W. G. Grace relates his personal experience of the sport and its history, and instructs the budding cricketer in the Spirit of the Game.
