Sydney, Rigby, 1987 [first trade edition].
Quarto, two volumes, a total of 800 pages with numerous plates (a number in colour) and facsimile newspaper clippings.
Cream cloth lettered in gilt on the spines and front cover; a fine set in the fine pictorial slipcase.
This first trade edition (issued at the same time as the signed limited edition in full leather), is greatly superior in quality to subsequent reprints. In this set, the frontispiece portrait of each volume is signed in blue ballpoint pen by Don Bradman, and the half-title of the first volume is inscribed and signed 'To Michael with best wishes, Don Bradman'.
