Carr's story was first printed in the cricketing anthology 'Fine Glances', issued three years previously. White and green pictorial paper over boards. Title in red on front cover and spine. outer edge untrimmed. Textured green end papers A charming book on cricket. delightful little story by J.L Carr recalling a match he played at Bridgenorth in Worcestershire in 1936. Strangely, this attractive item is not widely known. Byron Rogers wrote a highly acclaimed biography of JL Carr , but the First Saturday in May is not shown in the list of books written by Carr. It also escaped the attention of Stephen Gibbs in Post Padwick. J.L. Carr. 1912-1994, was one of the great polymaths of the twentieth century, putting his hand to teaching, travelling, novels, and social history, and even serving a stint as a photographer for the R.A.F. Famed for his eccentricity, he went through six publishers, one for each novel he wrote, until he formed his own Quince Tree Press. This is a beautiful and wistful account of a half-remembered pre-war cricket match: 'At least two of us would die in fixtures even then tentatively arranged for our generation." 1993 . Loosely inseted is a handwritten letter by Mary Parry dated 11-9-2004. also herewith: 2 signed etchings in sepia by Nicholas Parry measuring 100 x 150 mm for the actual etchings both mounted and protected by cellophane.
