With all the recent threads regarding Football Books, I thought I would share one of my OLDEST books on our favourite sport.

I assume this is the original cover, but I would be happily corrected.

It measures 14x10” , and is packed with fabulous Edwardian plates.

It always saddens me to see pages from this 224 page book, being ripped out.

I bought this 15 years or so ago, so would be curious as to its current value. I can’t imagine many have survived..?

I have copied the index, which is fascinating if only for many of the “big clubs” who hadn’t arrived yet!

Enjoy....

This volume was issued over a few different editions / years.

Try this link for value but always remember that an asking price is just that and an item is only worth what is sells for on any given day.
