Joe Darling played 34 Test matches for Australia between 1894 and 1905. As captain, he led Australia in a total of 21 Tests, winning seven and losing four. In Test cricket, he scored 1657 runs at an average of 28.56 per innings, including three centuries. Darling toured England four times with the Australian team, in 1896, 1899, 1902 and 1905, the last three tours as captain. He was probably presented with the Wisden by Luff on the 1899 tour.

When John Wisden died in 1884, childless and single, Henry Luff acquired the 'Wisden' company. As well as publishing the Almanack, John Wisden & Co were primarily a sports-equipment retailer, with a shop near Leicester Square. Luff strengthened the sports company by making it a manufacturer, and rejuvenated the book by handing it to a new generation. The Pardon brothers who ran the Cricket Reporting Agency. In 1887, Charles Pardon became editor; his brother Sydney, younger by five and a half years, took over in 1891, and remained until 1925. Luff died in 1910
