1926

The first edition under C Stewart Caine, who stepped into the breach following the death of the long-serving Sydney Pardon in November 1925, but the book was effectively Pardon's in all but name. It was also the largest edition yet at 1031 pages. For the fourth - and final - time, the Five Cricketers of the Year were dropped in favour of one player, this time Jack Hobbs, in recognition of his overtaking WG Grace as the most prolific centurymaker of all time.
