Synopsis

'Don Bradman: The First Ten Years' is a celebration of Australia's sporting hero and one of the most astonishing sportsmen of all time. Don Bradman made his debut in first-class cricket in Adelaide on 16th December 1927, playing for New South Wales against South Australia. He was then nineteen years of age. In the ten years that followed, Bradman rewrote batting records. He played fifty-one Test innings and scored 4,659 runs for an average of 97. He also played another 153 first class innings scoring 11,926 runs for an average of 90. His performance was fantastic in every meaning of the word. In those ten years there were sixty-one scores of 100 or more, including the record Test score of 334 against England at Headingley in 1930. As captain of Australia, Bradman also inspired his team to an historic victory against 'Gubby' Allen's England in the 1936-37 Ashes series. This small, elegant book tells the story of Bradman's early years in a number of essays, observations and articles by celebrated cricket writers including Neville Cardus, Douglas Jardine and C. L. R. James, and, of course, Wisden.It also reproduces Bradman's scorecards and statistics for major games, and has an essay and foreword by Piers Morgan, who was a friend and correspondent of Bradman in the years prior to his death in 2001.

It is a beautiful, small hardbacked volume, with nostalgia feel, and is a perfect gift book. It spans the seventy years in November since Bradman captained Australia against England in the Ashes. It is fully illustrated with black/white photographs. It presents a fascinating account of the early years of the world's finest batsman.
