BENTLEY, Henry A Correct Account of All the Cricket Matches Which Have Been Played by the Mary-le-bone Club, and all other Principal Matches From the Year 1786 to 1822 Inclusive

T.Traveller, 1823.

First edition. 8vo. Contemporary morocco grained cloth, lettered in gilt to the spine. A very good copy, a little worn at the head of the spine and faded at the edges, internally fresh.

A very early collection of cricket scores, preceded only by Britcher and Epps, but also recording matches missed by both, many of which, but for this work, would have been lost in the Lord's fire of 1825. Described by collectors and bibliographers, A.D. Taylor in 1906 as "very scarce" and J.W.Goldman in 1937 as "A cricket rarity".
