A Bibliography of Croquet compiled by David Drazin

Specialist books and pamphlets complete to 1997

With a wealth of descriptive detail and analysis, the compiler sets a standard for sports bibliography

This definitive bibliography, a first for croquet, is a must for collectors, book dealers and librarians.

Based on extensive research, this work will prove an invaluable source for reference for all scholars of croquet.

The literature of croquet has long been of interest to scholars and collectors, but no systematic bibliography of the subject has hitherto been published. This work is the first fruit of an ongoing project to fill that gap. It attempts to document all the books and pamphlets devoted to the game from its early beginnings to the end of1997. It is intended that a future volume will catalogue the periodical literature, other books and pamphlets, both fiction, and non fiction, which refer to the game, and contributions to other media.

The present volume is divided into four parts.
Part A records books and pamphlets about croquet whose existence has been verified or can safely be assumed, Part B records patents of inventions relating to the game, Part C lists other books and pamphlets not seen by the compiler whose existence is supported by good evidence, and Part D lists other patents related to the game not seen by the compiler. The subject works recorded in Part A receive full bibliographical descriptions together with historical and analytic notes. Those with exotic title pages are illustrated.

There are over one thousand entries, comprising 403 titles of specialist books and pamphlets, 493 subsequent editions and variants, and 158 patents. Most of the subject documents are in English, but the French, German, Italian, Swedish, Afrikaans, Chinese and Japanese languages are also represented.
