Alfred Percy 'Tich' Freeman. Kent & England 1914-1936. A collection of typed manuscripts with odd annotations in Freeman's own hand, comprising six articles written by Freeman in 1937, the year after ending his first-class career, in which he recollects his playing days. The first article relates to his early memories including playing in his first match as a boy aged eleven in 1897 at Leyton High School. He recalls his father practising with G.F. Hearne (Middlesex), Fred Huish, and Alec Hearne (Kent). Regarding bowlers he refers to Charles Kortright (Essex) as 'the fastest bowler in the world', and R.O. Schwartz of South Africa who introduced the googly to Freeman. After moving to Tonbridge his first-class debut was for Kent against Oxford University in 1914. He describes Kent players including Charlie Blythe, Frank Woolley, Punter Humphreys, Jim Seymour, Jack Mason etc, and relates memories of playing against W.G. Grace, and his first tour to Australia in 1925/25. In the second article Freeman comments on the 'glue-pot' wicket at the Rectory Field, Blackheath, 'the graveyard of [Surrey's] hopes', how Kent's bowlers were better suited to the conditions than their Surrey opponents and describes numerous encounters between the sides at that ground. He compares the styles of Jack Hobbs with Percy Chapman, comments on the visit of Armstrong's 1921 Australians and Collins' side of 1924, touring South Africa in 1927 etc. He opens the third article by describing how the 'four years of the war robbed me of what would, in all probability, been my best years', beating Tom Richardson's record of 290 wickets in a season in 1928 and going on to achieve the record of 304, which still stands to today. Freeman refers to his disappointment of not playing in a Test against Australia in England and recounts matches in which he played against Bradman. Other batsmen he admires include the Yorkshire pair of Sutcliffe and Holmes, and Jack Hobbs. Freeman devotes the fourth article to the 1922/23 tour to New Zealand led by A.C. Maclaren, including experiencing an earthquake during a match at Christchurch on Christmas Day, Gilligan's team to Australia in 1924/25, and Chapman's in 1928/29. In the fifth article Freeman lists his top seven batsmen, namely Jack Hobbs, Wally Hammond, Frank Woolley, Don Bradman, Charlie Macartney, Herbie Taylor and Patsy Hendren, and provides a good summary of the merits of each player, and also lists his 'World Eleven' and discussions on captaincy and wicketkeeping. In his final article Freeman writes about the press and selectors (referring again to being passed over for selection against Australia in England), the 'Bodyline' controversy etc. He closes by describing his disquiet at the manner of his dismissal by Kent as a player in 1936 having taken over 100 wickets, but which was curtailed by injury. He reproduces the letter informing him of the Club's decision, which he received after the news had already been released to the media. He closes, however, with happy memories of lighter moments on tour in South Africa and Australia. An excellent and entertaining first-hand account of a remarkable cricket career. Odd rust marks to some pages, otherwise in good condition

'The Spider and the Fly in Cricket Language' by Gowen Hopen. An entertaining typed poem comprising thirty two lines of rhyming couplets. Written as a pastiche of the poem by Mary Howitt originally published in 1828, in this version the Australian spinner, Charlie Grimmett, is styled as the spider, with Jack Hearne as the fly. The first two lines read, '"Won't you walk out to my bowling," said Grimmett to Jack Hearne;/ "'Tis the nicest, slowest bowling, the sort you always spurn." Hearne rejects the temptation stating 'But I have promised Gilligan that I would try and stay', but Hearne ultimately falls to Grimmett's 'corkscrew cunning'. Originally from Grimmett's personal collection. Horizontal folds, otherwise in good condition
Estimate: £50/80
