Descripción

In the days before air travel overseas tours often involved long periods away from home. Few, however, would have been more protracted than when the 1924-25 All Blacks spent from late June 1924 to March 17 1925 on tour. On the main part of the tour, Great Britain and France, the tream played 30 games, winning all and scoring 721 points against 112. While on the voyage to England the All Blacks stopped off in Australia to play four matches to "help the game along in Sydney". Even bofere that players had been involved in an intensive pre-selection series of trial and "possibles v probables" games and a North Island/South Island encounter. Following Britain/France tour the team crossed the Atantic to Canada where they played another three games in British Columbia. Read Masters, a notable rugby writer of the time, covers this "grand" tour's matches in detail, adds many pertinant observations on the team, the travel, public reaction and on the administration of the sport. An illuminating, and scarce, reflection on rugby tours in another age. Second edition of 1928, the first edition also 1928, 18 b/w photos, numerous, tables and team selections etc. Black card covers with white front titles/fern decoration, are VG with tiny sections missing spine extremities (no loss of titles), light wear to spine hinges, ink gift inscription dated 1929 inside front cover, text block otherwise excellent, light foxing to page edges as closed.
