The Story of Football was one of only two books published in series 606c (The Story of Cricket was the other). The book was written by Vera Southgate and was illustrated by Jack Matthew.
This topic was later revisited in the 1970s in Learnabout Football – but the later book has none of the charm of this one which is more about the history than the rules of the game. Only the first edition was ever published with a dustwrapper.
This copy is in good condition inside and out. The dj is not price-clipped but has some chips and minor loss head and foot of spine. There’s a small mark on the front panel (see photo) and another mark on the back endpapers. But the reading pages are nice and clean.
