First Edition. 75 pages, + 3 pages blank, eight pages of black-and-white photographs, text illustrated with some cartoons, and tables. Colour illustrated dust jacket. During the 1980 cricket season, Ben Travers broadcast a radio interview which aroused universal interest. Cricket lovers, old and young, were fascinated to hear the vivid recollections of one who had watched WG Grace make a century and seen Jessop's historic innings at the Oval in 1902. The encouragement he received to publish these impressions provided him with the incentive for this book. Later in life Travers accompanied the great English 1928-9 team on their visit to Australia and he became closely associated with many of the most eminent cricketers of both countries during that vintage period.

Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs of cricketers. The book covers the period 1882 through to 1981, and the editor's note states "this book does not purport to be a history of The Ashes, nor of the cricket tradition between England and Australia. The compilation has been restricted by the inability to obtain copyright clearance on some material, and by the demand of odorous terms in other cases. More importantly, though, the choice was strictly a personal one and in response to literary quality of the passages taken from the books, magazines and newspapers. So many of the books and articles which I read in the course of my research for this anthology have not, alas, stood the test of time."
