How to Bat and How Not to Bat

[Adelaide], Scrymgour and Sons, Printers [for the South Australian Cricket Association], [January 1913].

Duodecimo, 15 pages with 4 diagrams and 2 tables.

Wrappers (with the title page details printed within a border on the front cover) lightly creased; leading edge of the text very lightly nibbled, with a light crease to most bottom corners; trifling signs of use; a very good copy.

On the verso of the title page, there is a printed note 'To the Cricketers of South Australia. This article, written by C.B. Fry, Esq., the Captain of the English Team in the last series of Test Matches, is issued by the South Australian Cricket Association, with the hope that the principles laid down by the writer will prove of assistance to those who are desirous of moulding their batting on scientific lines'. Padwick II: 0361 (but not seen by the compilers). No copies in Trove; the only reference to it is in a report in the Hobart 'Mercury' (3 September 1912) on SACA's attempts to improve the game in South Australia. The relevant sub-committee recommended, among other things, that 'Copies of C.B. Fry's article on "How to bat and how not to bat" be circulated among cricketers generally'.
