Originally published in 1904. This book has been compiled at the request of the committee of the Yorkshire County Club, whose request had the force of a command. It is just what it's title indicates - a plain unvarnished chronicle of the development of the game of cricket in the county. This is a fascinating read for any cricket enthusiast or historian. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
