Hardcover with black boards and pictorial dust jacket, First Edition, 1,100gms, 200 pages, black coloured endpapers. No-one but an Australian could understand the mystical significance of a tiny earthenware jar that held something called Vegemite in the 1920s, or the fairly ordinary looking lump of willow, split at the bottom, but which bears the magical signature of Don Bradman, and which one hit enough cricket balls around an oval to make up 452 runs no out in one amazing innings in 1930. Book is in very good condition with no visible general wear and tear. Dust Jacket is in very good condition with no visible shelf wear, writing from previous owner on title page, otherwise no other pre-loved markings.
