This edition has an extensive new introduction by Gerry Wolstenholme.Lancashire Cricket was in its embryo stage in mid-Victorian times, the club being officially founded in 1864.

Following in the footsteps of the successful Manchester club, the fledgling County Club took its first tentative steps in major cricket with a somewhat modest fixture list.As the standing of the club improved, fixtures were arranged with many of the leading clubs following the first inter-county match in 1865. From then on the clubs fixture list grew, even though there was occasional difficulty in travelling to matches and teams were no always representative due to the unavailability of the amateurs.Personalities began to emerge and by the time of the unofficial listing of county standings, Lancashire were often challenging for honours.

In 1879 the championship was shared with Nottinghamshire and by 1881 Lancashire had become outright champions, going through the season undefeated in county games.Frederick Reynolds, himself a stalwart of the early sides, has captured the full story in words and scorecards and his legacy to the county is a book which is a valuable addition to cricket literature. It is a book not to be missed by cricket enthusiasts everywhere and one for Red Rose followers in particular.
