Sydney, Rigby, 1987.
Quarto, two volumes, a total of 800 pages with numerous plates and facsimile newspaper clippings.
Gilt-lettered cloth; spines very lightly sunned; an excellent set in the pictorial slipcase.
The first trade edition, vastly superior to subsequent reprints. The frontispiece in each volume has been signed in blue ballpoint pen by Don Bradman, and there is a further signed inscription from him on the title-page of the first volume. (The leather-bound edition of 500 sets, with the signature of Don Bradman supplied on a tipped-in printed label, sold out at the time at the retail price of $1000).
