An original sequence of seven cartoons, in ink on paper, depicting havoc being wrought by the England team at Kooyonga Golf Club during the rest day of the Adelaide test of 1928/9. Signed by Mailey in the lower right hand corner. Mounted, framed and glazed. Arthur Mailey (1886-1967) was a successful leg break bowler, taking 99 wickets from Australia in 21 tests between 1921 and 1929, however his lasting talent was as a cartoonist and he had a particular knack of caricaturing his team mates and opponents, his ready wit creating a humorous narrative with a sequence of cartoons. He drew for the Sydney Arrow and Bulletin and the London Bystander as well as writing and illustrating a number of books, most notably his account of the Bodyline series, And Then Came Larwood and his autobiography, 10 for 66 And All That. Although individual sketches appear occasionally, complete cartoon sequences are rarely seen in commerce. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
