This book paints a detailed picture of Sussex village life by following its various characters over the course of a day that centres around a local cricket match. From the players awakening in the various different circumstances of their individual lives to their assembling on the field, the playing of the game, and their eventual dispersing in the evening, we are shown a lovely illustration of the human spirit with uncanny completeness. An inspiring and beautiful text, this volume will appeal to anyone with an interest in the essence of the human condition, and it is a must-have for any collectors of De SelinCourt's wonderful work. The chapters of this book include: 'Introduces the Village of Tilling Fold', 'Some Players Awaken', 'The Morning Passes', 'The Teams Assemble', 'Tillingfold Bat', 'The Tea Interval', 'Tillingfold Field', 'The Evening Passes and Night Falls', et cetera. We are republishing this antiquarian volume now complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
