BOOK – SPORT – AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF BALL GAMES by NIGEL VINEY & NEIL GRANT

  • £9.99


An Illustrated History of Ball Games by Nigel Viney & Neil Grant explains the origins and development of nearly fifty ball games, from the various versions of the games we all know such as Football, Cricket, Tennis & Golf right through to the less known such as Shinty, Stoolball, Korfball, Knurr & Spell and Gilli Danda

This is a first edition published by William Heinemann in 1978 - it is 201 page hardback, green cloth cover with gold lettering on the spine complete with dustjacket measuring 9.5" (24cm) x 6.75” (17cm) x 7/8" (2cm) ISBN 434969400

The book is in excellent condition with a good binding, no written dedications and no age related discolouration – as you can see from the photos, the dustjacket has been price clipped, has a few little wear marks but is generally in very good condition

A good, interesting read, it will make a fine addition to any sporting library
