A book of reference, 1866

To the reader

JOHN WISDEN AND CO. have again to thank the Cricketing Public for the encouragement given to the Almanack, and they beg respectfully to offer the third number for the perusal of their friends, trusting that it will be received with as much favour as its predecessors.

J. W. and Co. have this year published the matches of the three All England Elevens, feeling certain, from the great favour with which these celebrated Elevens are received in all parts of the country, their doings will be read with interest.

J. W. and Co. have carefully avoided making any remarks upon the play or players, as the purport of this little work is to record the scores of the matches published as a book of reference.


January, 1866.
