The History of A Hundred Centuries by W.G. Grace 1st / 1st 1895
First edition and first print published by Upcott Gill in 1895. This is a near fine and remarkably has its original wrappers in tact. The spine and wrappers are in near fine condition with very little wear at all. The front panel has a strip of browning to the left hand side. Otherwise it is very clean with hardly any marks at all. The pages are also very clean with no foxing marks and no previous owners names or other ink. It is a highly collectible near fine copy and rare to see with the original wrappers.
This rare publication with a portrait of the great W.G. Grace on the front panel gives details of his 100 centuries hit between 1866 and 1895. It gives the scorecards and his recollection of the matches and his innings. A very rare item in this condition.
