This copy has been signed by five famous Welsh sportsmen, 1.

Lewis, with another word in double inverted commas, but I can't work out who this is...

A biography of the cricketing twins Alec and Eric Bedser. This is the second volume of biography and concentrates on the historic 1950–1953 cricket seasons.


Fair condition. The dustwrapper is faded to the spine and rather worn. The book has foxing to the page edges and endpapers, the text pages are tanned but it remains in good readable condition. There is a slightly musty odour which will go in time.
