R. C. Robertson-Glasgow once again employs his well-known wit and urbanity to introduce a further collection of cricketing portraits .This time he has winded his scope to include not only the cricketers who have won international fame, but also those who have given years of faithful service to their countries and universities. Ranging from Sir Aubrey Smith, whose cricketing feats for Sussex and Cambridge date back to the mellow Edwardian days, to Kenneth Miller, dashing Australian batsman-bowler, these prints include such stalwarts as, Laurie Fishlock, Len Hutton and L.J.Todd of Kent-and J.M. Lomas, the graceful Oxford batsman, whose untimely death robbed cricket of a potential great name. Robertson-Glasgow, former Oxford University and Somerset cricketer and now correspondent for the Observer brings not only wide playing experience but years of acute observation and comparative criticism to bear on his subject. His style ,as easy and assured as a Compton off-drive, combines with his wisdom and kindly shrewdness to make this book a memorable successor to Cricket Prints, his first book.
