Gwynedd Abbey 1996 0952823101 / 9780952823100 Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 12 illustrations. Alex Bird was born in Newton Heath, North Manchester and was introduced to the world of racing by his bookmaker father, and after a short spell bookmaking, he turned poacher and devoted his career to beating the bookmakers - succeeding in a way that has rarely been approached and never overtaken. For almost 50 years he was the bane of the bookie, and was known as 'The King', and although he died in 1991he remains an icon in the world of racing. The dustjacket shows him meeting Bill Clinton, before he became President, on his regular annual trip to see the Breeder's Cup races in the USA when he would stay for a vacation with his daughter in Arkansas.
