BOOK – SPORT – HORSERACING – THE GRAND NATIONAL – ANYBODY’S RACE by PETER KING

  • £9.99


In this fascinating book, Peter King describes the Grand National’s history from its origins in the 1830’s to the television era and the problems of the 1980’s, when Aintree was very nearly lost due to financial problems

This is a first edition published by Quartet Books in London in 1983 - it is a 165 page hardback, black cloth cover with gilded lettering on the spine complete with dustjacket measuring 8.75" (22cm) x 5.75" (14.5cm) x 3/4" (2cm) ISBN 0704323850

The book itself is in very good condition with no written dedications or age related discolouration – as you can see from the photos, the dustjacket is also in great condition and has not been price-clipped

A really interesting book and a great read for the National Hunt enthusiast, it will make a fine addition to any racing library
