Today we have recieved a create of books, from Santo Caruso at Melbourne Sports Books. Luke and Eric have been looking through the books, before Santo returns this afternoon to take the unwanted books back.
They have selected 13 books, which include 10 books on Australian Rules Football. I know that sounds like alot, but this includes Santo’s own book on Football Grounds of Melbourne.
We have also selected Marc Fiddian’s books, Footscray’s Royal Year: how Footscray won the 1954 VFL Premiership and Where Eagles Flew: a history of the Yarraville Football Club.
John Stoward’s History of Football in Melbourne’s North West: Essendon District Football League and Western Region Football League.
We have thought these books should be included in our collection.
The other 3 books are based on the Australian Tennis Open, The Sports Rules Book (which includes 54 different sports) and Snooker (4th edition) from the “know-the-game” series.
