Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

The Willoughby Captains: Large Print By Talbot Baines Reed The last of the old Captain. Something unusual is happening at Willoughby. The Union Jack floats proudly over the old ivy-covered tower of the school, the schoolrooms are deserted, there is a band playing somewhere, a double row of carriages is drawn up round the large meadow (familiarly called "The Big"), old Mrs Gallop, the orange and sherbert woman, is almost beside herself with business flurry, and boys are going hither and thither, some of them in white ducks with favours on their sleeves, and others in their Sunday "tiles," with sisters and cousins and aunts in tow, whose presence adds greatly to the brightness of the scene. Among these last-named holiday-making young Willoughbites no one parades more triumphantly to-day than Master Cusack, of Welch's House, by the side of his father, Captain Cusack, R.N. Cusack, ever since he came to Willoughby, has bored friend and foe with endless references to "the gov., captain in the R.N., you know," and now that he really has a chance of showing off his parent in the flesh his small head is nearly turned. He puffs along like a small steam-tug with a glorious man-of-war in tow, and is too anxious to exhibit his prize in "The Big" to do even the ordinary honours of the place to his relative. Captain Cusack, R.N., the meekest and most amiable of men, resigns himself pleasantly to the will of his dutiful conductor, only too pleased to see the boy so happy, and pardonably gratified to know that he himself is the special object of that young gentleman's jubilation. He had come down, hoping for a quiet hour or two to see his boy and inspect Willoughby, but he finds that, instead, he is to be inspected himself, and, though he wouldn't thwart the lad for the world, he would just as soon have dropped in at Willoughby on a rather less public occasion.

The Willoughby Captains Volume 1 By Talbot Baines Reed Wyndham, the old captain, as he now was--for this was his last appearance at the old school--was not the sort of fellow to get his head turned by anything if he could help it. He hated scenes of any sort, and therefore took a specially long time over his bath, which his fag had prepared for him with the most lavish care. Boys waylaid his door and the schoolhouse gate for a full hour ready to cheer him when he came out; but he knew better than to gratify them and finally they went off and lionised Bloomfield instead, who bore his laurels with rather less indifference.

Excerpt from The Willoughby Captains The dejected countenances of the two heroes is answer enough. Watkins won, says Parson, speaking in a subdued voice. The fact is, my shoe-lace came undone just when I was putting it on at the end. And the swindle is, puts in Telson, that just as I was spurting for the last twenty yards Watkins took my water. I could have fouled him, you know, but I didn't care to. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

For a hundred years, from about the 1850s to the 1950s, schoolboy stories were voraciously read by the vast majority of boys and a high proportion of girls. A huge proportion of these ‘ripping yarns’ were school-based stories – and cricket was an invariable element, From Tom Brown’s Schooldays to the ‘Red Circle’ tales of the Hotspur comic, older children of all classes were inducted into a culture in which cricket was admired as the ideal sport. Inevitably, this led to generations of parents and, importantly, teachers inculcating this concept into their offspring and pupils respectively. The chief relevant authors were self-proclaimed protagonists of the faith of Muscular Christianity; there was no accident about the creed they preached in their stories, inclusive of the righteous role of cricket in pursuit of their ideals. This text describes the sheer weight and longevity of cricket in this type of literature and the background and beliefs of its major progenitors. That also analyses the cultural and social impact of this intense volume of schoolboy cricket tales. The author’s controversial conclusion is that, in brief, it was good for cricket but bad for the nation’s education system. Here is a book, then, that will appeal not only to cricket fans but to those interested in children’s literature, social history and the development of today’s schools.
