To the reader

WISDEN AND MAYNARD very respectfully offer to the Cricketing Public their fifth edition of the Almanack, and have again to thank their numerous friends for the kind support they have received during the past four years.

In consequence of the great increase in the number of matches played during the past season, W. & M. have most reluctantly been again compelled to limit the Eleven v. Twenty-two Matches to the Results only, though they are aware that many of their friends are very much interested in them; but, having added the Results of some other Clubs, they trust the Work, as a whole, will give general satisfaction.


January, 1868.
