[ORIGINAL PRESS PHOTOGRAPHS]
Great Britain - France. Rugby League Exhibition Series. East London, 27 July 1957
. Four photographs (between 160 x 205 mm and 137 x 203 mm) of rugby league football action. Three of the photographs are certainly of the encounter between Great Britain and France in East London on 27 July 1957, and were developed by the studio of H. A. Klausner. The fourth photograph has the hand-stamp of Barrett's News Photos, Johannesburg, and is from a training match of the same period. Largely on the back of Tom van Vollenhoven's exploits for St Helens after the Springbok star switched codes, there were efforts to launch rugby league football in South Africa during the 1950s. Three exhibition games between Great Britain and France were arranged. Although at least one source claims that the final game, scheduled for East London, did not take place, these photographs prove otherwise. The players depicted are wearing the kits of France and England, and penned notes on the reverse of two of the photographs read "Rugby League / East London 27/7/57: Great Britain scores to make 17 32", and "Rugby League East London 27/7/57: Gt. Britain scores to make 17 57.".

ARLOTT, JOHN
Cricket on Trial. John Arlott's Cricket Journal - 3
(London, Heinemann, 1960). . 8vo; original burgundy boards; no dustwrapper; pp. 256; black-and-white photographic plates; scattered light foxing. Very good condition. "In the English season of 1898 Phillips 'called' C. B. Fry - and so did two other umpires, West and Sherwin - while Titchmarsh 'no balled' a newcomer, Hopkins of Warwickshire. Fry had performed the hat-trick at Lord's and, indignant at the umpires' 'calling', he volunteered to demonstrate the straightness of his arm by bowling in a splint. The suggestion was not accepted." There is much in this volume of classic cricket journalism on the South African touring party, including Tayfield, Adcock and McGlew, and the controversy surrounding the "chucking" action of Geoff Griffin. Arlott provides a history of Bowling v Throwing, which is of considerable interest in the light of new regulations on the straightening of the bowler's elbow..

BAM, GERT, AND OTHERS
Season of Magic. The Paul Adams Story
(Cape Town, Kagiso Publishers, 1996). . 277 x 210 mm; laminated pictorial wraps; pp. (x) + 134; profusely illustrated with full-colour photographs; small price label scar on rear cover. Very good condition. "From the outset of this project we knew there was more to the story of Paul Adams than a progression of sporting achievements, although his cricket career in itself is remarkable. However, behind it lies the complex social history of an entire country, of a Cape Flats community and, most of all, of a family who - through a lifetime of upheaval, change and economic hardship - managed to hold themselves together as a tight-knit, supportive unit. Paul's achievement is their achievement too. The uniqueness of Paul's experience gave us the unusual opportunity of writing a biography of a nineteen-year-old sportsperson whose career is just beginning.".

On his return to the South African scene in 1985, he dominated the season as no other player has ever done. He has now established himself as the greatest kicker ever in rugby history...

Very good condition. "Both spectators and players alike agree (for different reasons) that there is no joy to equal the perfectly timed long-carrying hit, and my purpose in this book is to record the details of some of the greatest hits ever made, and to give some survey of the methods and achievements of some of the greatest hitters. Since a great hit is such a memorable source of pleasure, I feel that it should be recorded for posterity quite as definitively as any century or hat-trick.".

BRYANT, JOHN
3: 59. 4. The Quest to Break the Four-Minute Mile
(London, Hutchinson, 2004). . 8vo; original black boards; spine gilt; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. x + 310, incl. index; monochrome photographic plates. NEW. "The record-breaking achievement of Bannister, Brasher and Chataway made the front pages around the world, heralding what historians may come to regard as the most significant sporting triumph of the twentieth century. On hearing the news, the Oxford Union passed a motion that they should adjourn for 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. Congratulations poured in from around the world. The telegram from Paavo Nurmi said simply: 'Well done Britain.' . This is the story of the long quest for the 'Magic Mile', almost two hundred years in the making. The methods the runners used, the secrets they uncovered, were passed like a baton through the generations, until the quest reached its climax on 6 May 1954, when Roger Bannister, Christopher Chataway and Chris Brasher united to achieve the impossible.".
