William Clulow Sim. 'The Log of the "Old Un" from Liverpool to San Francisco: dedicated without permission, to the members of the English cricketing eleven, who visited America and Canada in 1886. a plain unvarnished "Log", a simple tribute of regard that the "Old Un" hopes will be accepted, in recollection of many pleasant days on land and sea'. Printed for private circulation. H.S. Eland, Printer, Exeter 1887. 30 pages, pale yellow pictorial hard covers, later reinforced spine, with a real photograph of Arthur Rhodes Cobb, sitting wearing cricket attire with a bat and trophy on table next to him, laid down to the inside front board. and inscribed 'With the Old Un's kindest regards. William C. Sim, April 1887', also with the ownership signature of C.I.S. Wallace 1944. The last page of the book announced the 'melancholy occurrence, in the death of Mr. Cobb' who had died of cholera soon after his return from the tour. The book is preserved in a document envelope tipped in to grey boards with a typed title to front cover. The original pale yellow boards with some wear and staining and rounding to corners. Minor soiling to last page otherwise in good condition internally. Padwick 4898. A very rare tour book signed by the author.

The book is sold with a related letter, with good association, from C.I.S. Wallace in which he refers to actually obtaining the book... A two page handwritten letter, dated 20th September 1945, and sent from his home in Orpington to a Mr Tyler sending him with compliments three small books. Wallace writes of having collected during 50 years and found great assistance from the real enthusiasts; perhaps a good thing that there are not more or 'the dealers would take even greater advantage of us than they do. Only last week one of them actually asked me to pay 5/- each for some odd numbers of "MCC Scores" when A D Taylor tells us that the whole set is worth only 15/-. I only wish the defunct Cricketana Society would revive'. He then goes on to share Tyler's dislike of paper covers on books and explains how he got over the problem of wear by removing the wraps and pasting them on cardboard. He even does this to Wisdens. He finishes with informing Tyler that his latest find, 'which gave me great joy, was a copy of "The Log of the Old'un" a very rare little gem'. A very interesting explanation of Wallace's unique style of re-binding still encountered today and possibly used on this book...

The 'Old Un' was the nom de plume of William Clulow Sim, who acted as scorer for E.J.Sanders team of English cricketers which toured America and Canada in 1886. On his return he recorded his observations and impressions of the tour in this book, giving full details of the nine matches played, seven in America and two in Canada, but also giving an insight into life and cricket as it grew in North America.

The tour was arranged by Edward James Sanders, whose team made a successful tour to America and Canada in the previous year with large crowds in attendance. Sim explained that 'having long wished to pay my son in California a visit, I was easily persuaded by Ned Sanders, the Manager of the English Cricketing Eleven, to accompany his party across the Atlantic, in the official capacity of Scorer'. Both Sim and Sanders played most of their cricket for representative Devon county sides and held administrative roles for the Devon club. The batting averages of the tourists were dominated by K J Key (Surrey), the captain, who scored 388 at 29.11 with the only century of the tour; the bowling honours were shared around. Other notable tourists included W.E. Roller of Surrey and C.E. Cottrell of Middlesex who were the principal bowlers.

As far as we can ascertain... there are four known copies of the book, one being held at Lord's, one in a private collection overseas, there was a copy in the Winder collection, as listed by D.R. Allen, which may have been Goldman's copy and this copy which came indirectly from the Wallace collection. A.D. Taylor listed a copy in his Catalogue of Cricket Literature as' exceedingly rare'; Goldman had a copy in his collection and called it 'very scarce'. No copy has been found to be noted in auction catalogues
