Lawrence, Eddie:  
Somerset County Cricket Club, Fifty of the Finest Matches.

Publisher: Stroud, Tempus Publishing, 2002. (1st Edition).
128pp with b/w photo illus and scorecards. "This book covers fifty of the most memorable first-class matches over the 110 years of Somerset CCC's history. Some matches have been chosen because they were great Somerset victories, others because they were closely-fought encounters which ended in either a well-earned draw or in narrow defeat. The touring sides are not forgotten, with the Indians' visit in 1946 and the Australians' in 1971 receiving deserved inclusion for rare victories against overseas opposition. From the matches at the end of the nineteenth century through to 2001, each of the fifty matches chosen can rightly be deemed a 'classic'. Some of the greatest moments in Somerset CCC's long history are recalled, as are many great cricketer who have played for the club, such as Sammy Woods, Jack White, Arthur Wellard, Harold Gimblett, Bill Alley and of course, the three legends, Viv Richards, Ian Botham, and Joel Garner. Carefully researched and selected by Eddie Lawrence, an Honourable Life Member of the club, each match is covered by a comprehensive match report and a scorcard. Over 100 pictures are included featuring the individuals and events on the pitch which make up this history of the club" Fine (new) cond trade paperback. 9 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches

How to Twirl a Baton
Publisher: Leedy Mfg. Co., Inc., 1939 Elkhart, IN.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. Soft cover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "No one book could ever completely discuss or attempt to teach the many thousands of twirling movements and stunts that are possible. Furthermore, it is almost impossible to diagram and properly convey the teaching thoughts required for some of the more intricate and complicated twirling movements. In this book we present the BASIC essentials, the true fundamentals that are actually necessary for the student beginner, showing only what can be clearly understood by text and diagram, in order to make this as nearly a self instructor as we think, practical and possible..The art of baton twirling is not a magic art. It presents no mystery to anyone with the average athletic ability and a sincere desire to practice consistently and regularly. This is the Revised edition of our previous baton twirling method which was, as far as we know, the first book ever printed and published on the subject." Well illustrated. 28 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition. Paper wrappers; stapled binding.
