Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

Pontypool is a town which has grown and expanded out of its industrial base; and is one of the earliest towns to appear on the 'rugby scene' between 1868 and 1875. As with many other Welsh rugby clubs, the start of the game of rugby in Pontypool is obscure and yet there is a strong connection that helps explain how a game played by English and Welsh public grammar schoolboys and University students came to be adopted first

by local business men and later by the working class of Pontypool. A book full of Game results and players names and statistics from the earliest years. 298 x 210mm., pp, xii, 300, black & white and colour plates throughout, map, Acknowledgements, bibliography, index of Names.

Contents, SIGNED on front endpaper by EDWARD DONOVAN; also six line inscription front free endpaper, first six pages are a little 'soiled' on edges; dust jacket, repaired tear bottom spine, top spine rubbed, front bottom right hand corner tear - front picture complete and bright.
