Profile

Fred Lillywhite was part of a remarkable cricketing family, but made his name as a sports outfitter, publisher and cricketing entrepreneur. By the time he was 20 he had produced the first edition of The Guide To Cricketers which ran through to his death in 1866, a book which was loosely the forerunner of the more famous Wisden Cricketers' Almanack. In 1859 he accompanied George Parr's professional side on the groundbreaking tour to North America, fulfilling the role of scorer. He also took a tent and a mobile scoring wagon, and subsequently published the definite account of the trip. In 1862 he published Scores and Biographies, the first major work on the game in almost a century.
