Brightly Fades the Don

by J. H. Fingleton

Collins, 1950, [Third Impression], black and white photographic plates, black and white photographic frontispiece, hardcover, dustjacket

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, some rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, age toned pages, previous owners’ inscription on front endpaper, dustjacket shows some edge and shelf wear with a little rubbing, bumping, chipping, tears and discoloration, tear across back, small part missing at spine (see photographs)

In Brightly Fades the Don, Fingleton uses to the full his experience as a player and as a writer to tell the story of the Australian tour in England in 1948 – the last series of Tests in which Bradman was to play – and to give some delightful portraits of English county cricket clubs, their grounds, and their players.  Why did England fail so sadly?  How does Bradman stand in comparison with the giants of the past?  What are the characteristics which have made him a superlative cricketer and a great captain? No one can answer these questions with greater authority than Fingleton.”
