Dustjacket has age darkening and is not price clipped. 288 pages. Frontispiec portrait and 7 illustrations. As a writer on both cricket and music Neville Cardus achieved a reputation which is perhaps without parallel. The book follows the boy Cardus fromhis obscure birth in the slums of Manchester along the road to fame. It is a steep climb from the slums of Manchester to the Long Room at Lord's, and the musical festivals of Salzburg, but Cardus sees his younger self with an admirable and vivid detachment, and the result is a narrative of unusual sincerity, at times infinitely moving, but enriched always with humour, the thrill of achievement and the wisdom of wide experience. **** NOT EX LIB ****

2 Cardus, Neville Talking of Music
London Collins 1957 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
A near Fine unmarked copy which has a strip of age toning to endpapers with dustjacket which has a repaired closed tear and is not price clipped. 320 pages. In his first book devoted exclusively to music for twelve years, Neville Cardus ranges at large over the music scene, which he has described with such grace in the columns of the Manchester Guardian and elsewhere. Starting with an appreciation of Toscanini, he writes of other conductors, including his favourite, Sir Thomas Beecham, and of the status and function of the conductor in a modern symphony concert. Next he turns to composers, writing with special force of Mahler, Strauss, Mozart, Elgar and contemporary English composers. In a stimulating and witty section about Opera, he recalls his visit to Vienna. Finally he considers the principles which lie - or should lie - behind musical criticism.
