The scorebook half bound in leather with cloth boards with gilt titles to front board 'M.C.C. Australian Tour 1936-37' with 'Capt R. Howard. Manager.' in gilt to bottom right hand corner. The leather worn and scuffed with some staining to cloth, particularly to the back board. The scorebook covers all twenty nine matches played on the tour beginning with the one day match played against All Ceylon at Colombo on October 3rd 1936 and concluding with the final match of the tour against an Auckland and Wellington team at Wellington on the 1st-3rd April 1937. Each match is beautifully recorded in ink in Ferguson's hand.

In addition, there are brief notes on the weather conditions, who won the toss, the names of the umpires and scorers and notable partnerships.

M.C.C. under the captaincy of 'Gubby' Allen left Southampton for Australia on 12th September 1936, arriving at Perth via Colombo on the 13th October 1936. They played twenty five matches in Australia and a further three in New Zealand. Having started off the Test series well, winning the first two Tests, M.C.C, lost the remaining three Tests and so failed to regain the Ashes. England's failure can be attributed to a combination of poor batting and the brilliance of Don Bradman. The tour was a financial success due to the fluctuating nature of the Tests and broke all records with receipts amounting to £90,909 with over 900,000 people attending. Bradman made 82 in the 2nd Test, 270 in the 3rd Test, 212 in the 4th Test and 169 in the fifth Test

'Clapton Cricket Club. Matches 1845 - [1853]'. Very early and original red leather bound scorebook for the club with titles in gilt to front cover and brass metal clip fastener to edge, marbled page block and was produced by Harris & Galabin, Stationers of Fenchurch Street, London. The scorebook appears to record thirty matches played in the period 1845 to 1853 by Clapton, the majority from 1845 to 1847, with matches played against Haileybury, Dulwich (Union), Oxford & Cambridge Universities (combined XII), Haileybury College, Oxford University, Cambridge University, Cambridge Quidnuncs, Blackheath Dartmouth, Blackheath Paragon, Montpelier Club, Surry [Surrey] Club, Kings Walden and Godalming. Some notable players took part in these matches including four of the Walker (of Southgate) brothers who played regularly for Clapton C.C. prior to the formation of the Southgate Club (circa 1858) for which they became known, John Walker, Alfred Walker, Frederic Walker, Arthur Henry Walker, William Nicholson, Thomas Sherman, Edmund Reeves, William Denison, George Brockwell (Uncle of William), Frederick Caesar (Brother of Julius), Charles Gordon, Thomas Craven and appearing in two of the matches and playing for Blackheath Dartmouth, Nicholas Felix (Wanostrocht) scoring 43 runs against Clapton in July 1845 and scoring 96 not out for Blackheath against Clapton in July 1846. The match played between Montpelier (the original tenants of the Kennington Oval) and Clapton on 17th July 1845 was played for a 100 guineas a side, the announcement of the match in the press on the 13th July 1845 read 'The Montpelier and Upper Clapton Clubs will play their annual match on the Surrey Ground, Kennington Oval on Thursday next, the 17th instant, and from the celebrity of these strong clubs, a great treat is expected. The ground is in fine condition'. A report on the match on the 20th July 1845 reads 'A match, which excited considerable interest, took place between the above clubs on Thursday last, at the New Ground, Kennington Oval. Some fine play was exhibited on both sides....'. Both Arthur Haygarth and W.W. Read (in various books) state that this match was the first to be played at the Kennington Oval although H.H. Montgomery in his book 'The History of Kennington does not, he suggests that the first actual game at the Oval was played on the 13th May 1845. To the back of the scorebook neatly handwritten to two facing pages are the 'Averages of Runs obtained in Matches for 1845' and 'Averages of Runs obtained in Matches for 1846' and also of wickets taken. There are also annotated notes regarding the past season. For 1845 the notes read 'The Club played 8 matches of which 4 were won, 2 were lost and 2 undecided.... The season was very wet and unfavourable and several of the first rate matches were impeded thereby'. For 1846 'The club played 9 matches, 5 won, 3 lost and 1 undecided. The finest weather we ever had'. Plus there is a handwritten team sheet with names and order of batting numbers to sides. Craven and Gordon scored the most runs in 1845 and John Walker and Gordon were highest in 1846 with Craven and Alfred Waker taking the most wickets. The scorebook has been very neatly compiled and interestingly laid out and in two distinctive hands, the pages preprinted with titles with an innings to a page. The early matches from 1845 to 1847 have handwritten headings detailing the two teams playing, the ground and the date of the match. There follows a series of matches where no headings with dates appear however the first match with no heading has been identified as being between Clapton and Cambridge Quidnuncs in 1853 and the penultimate match written in the book has titles to the top border v Blackheath 17th August 1853 so it is reasonable to assume all games lacking their heading took place in that year although there seems to be major changes to the Clapton team for the last match entered, so this may have been at a later date. The 'celebrated' Clapton Club was formed in 1832 and re-formed in 1854. The scorebook has some minor wear to boards, A very early and beautifully compiled scorebook, thought to have been lost or destroyed, with some famous names from the birth of cricket

The scorebook has been in the vendors family possession for over 30 years. The book 'The Walkers of Southgate. A Famous Brotherhood of Cricket'. W.A. Bettesworth 1990 devotes several pages to the club and the Walkers involvement therein. A passage from the book reads 'In his [John Walker] early days he was one of the supporters of the old Clapton Club being assisted in his efforts to promote the club's success by Mr W. Nicholson, who himself was a famous wicket-keeper and batsman [pages 27/28]. There is a six page chapter on pages 161-166 entitled 'Early Matches' which refers in great detail on matches played for Clapton by the Walker brothers. 'As is perhaps only natural, the records of the early days of the Walkers in the cricket field are not only incomplete but almost non-existent. Occasionally by good fortune one may come across a score of an old Clapton or Southgate Albert match, but as far as can be ascertained the score books were destroyed some years ago. This is the more to be regretted because many of the famous players of the day assisted the Clapton Club. Mr John Walker and Mr William Nicholson were the founders (??) of the old Clapton C.C. and constantly played for it, together with Mr Fred Walker and Mr Alfred Walker. ..... Whenever one happens upon a report of an old Clapton match one is pretty sure to find that the fast underhand bowling of A. Walker esq was the chief cause of the defeat of the other side, and that either Mr John or Mr Fred made some very hard hits and scored pretty largely'. Another match which appears in the scorebook and is mentioned by Bettesworth is the Clapton v Cambridge Quidnuncs game of 1853. 'Another interesting match this year was between the Quidnuncs and Clapton. The former making 106 and 201 for nine wickets, and Clapton 117 and 29 for six wickets.... Not withstanding the inducement which the London season holds out to the majority of young men assiduously engaged in sowing their wild oats, a fair quota of Quidnuncs appeared at Clapton on Thursday last. There were two vacancies, to be sure, to be filled up..... A greater treat than the Clapton cricket offered to the Quidnuncs can hardly be imagined: amongst their ranks every style had its professor'. Mr F. Walker, played for the Quidnuncs, scoring 31 not out and 43, both the highest scores on his side. For Clapton Mr John, Mr Alfred and Mr Arthur Walker all made runs, while Mr Alfred was irresistible with the ball, taking fourteen wickets...'
