Reader's note

‘Giants of the Game’, although little known, contains many well written and informed biographies of English and Australian players of the latter half of the nineteenth century. The first section, written by R. H. Lyttelton, a member of a renowned cricketing family, includes biographies of such well-known players as W. G. Grace, K. S. Ranjitsinhji and A. C. Maclaren. Many early stars such as V. E. Walker and R. Salt are included, who were in their prime before the advent of test cricket. There is a fascinating collection of notes on the ‘big hitters’ of the time, written by W. J. Ford. There are also sections of the book written by C. B. Fry and George Giffen.
