KIRKUS REVIEW

Playing fields and players the world over, from the age of chivalry to similarly courtly Victorian times. The 144-contemporary drawings, engravings and paintings and 16 color plates are bolstered with selections from such notables as Twain, Fielding and Dickens. Arlott, a broadcaster, writes a long introduction to the sports which include angling, cock-fighting, football, gaming, and racing. Daley, a New York Times sportswriter, writes on the evolution of sports in the United States.
