FELIX ON THE BAT: BEING A SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY INTO THE USE OF THE CRICKET BAT .
Baily Brothers 1850 - The classic early instructional work by the renowned Kent and All-England batsman. Nicholas Wanostrocht, who played under the name Felix, was a schoolmaster at Blackheath and played cricket as an amateur alongside the early greats, Fuller Pilch and Alfred Mynn. This famous work gives a fascinating insight into the techniques employed by the game's earliest batsmen, with stokes like the "Draw" and the "Home Draw" being all the rage. It is the first book on cricket to be illustrated with coloured lithographs. This is a second edition, the first published 1845, with a new introduction. Second edition. Small 4to. viii + 58pp + [2] publisher's adverts. All edges gilt. Coloured frontispiece, 6 coloured and 3 uncoloured plates (after G.F Watts), illustrations in the text. Original green decorative cloth, gilt illustration and titles to upper board, faded, corners bumped. Respined, title in gilt to new spine. Contents bright, some sl staining to some pages, sl foxing to some plates, book-plates of JDS Dale and PDS Dale laid down inside the front cover and on the first end-paper. A very good copy.
