  1. Can anyone please tell me the year this book was published.
    I have this Beautiful Rare little book in almost Mint Condition.
    Regards Steve

    1. Hi Steve,

      I think the book was published in 1947 as one of the biographies mentions the Great Britain v Rest of Europe game in May and the game took place at Hampden Park, Glasgow on 10 May, 1947.


    2. Hi Alan,
      Wow 1947 ..Thank you so much for the information. Do know how many were published and any idea the value. Were they published annually.
      Regards Steve

    3. Hi Steve,
      I've no idea how many were published, but it was a one-off not an annual publication. Sorry, but I've no idea of value either, though in that condition they are very rare.


Please feel free to leave a comment, though it will not appear straight away, as I will need to authorize it.
