Description

Magnificent Rare E J L Platnauer 'Souvenir of the Springboks 1906-7' Rugby Book: Lovely, comprehensive, hard-to-obtain, famous fully detailed volume covering the Springboks' UK tour 1906-7 in its immediate aftermath. Game by game reports and super-sharp plates of the side and their opponents and action from the successful first northern trek. Hard green decorative Springbok cover, landscape style, 238 pp. Former owner's neat address inside front, spine a little loosened but entire, some slight marks to extreme edge of first few pp and to the margins of two pages later, otherwise a rare delight. We are surprised & delighted to offer another so soon after the very coveted copy which sold here in February. VG, especially for its 115+ years

Hammer Price: £1200.00
