F. S. Ashley-Cooper
According to Wisden, Ashley-Cooper wrote "103 books and pamphlets on the game ... besides a very large amount of matter including 40,000 biographical or obituary notices". Frail and short-sighted, he never played cricket, and seldom watched, but his "total involvement in the game almost precluded every other interest".
His most notable works were:
- Cricket Magazine (1900) reproducing notices of known matches played 1742 to 1751
- Sussex Cricket and Cricketers (1901)
- Curiosities of First-Class Cricket 1730-1901 (1901)
- Nottinghamshire Cricket and Cricketers (1923)
- The Hambledon Cricket Chronicle 1772-1796 (1924)
- Cricket Highways and Byways (1927) (essays)
- Kent Cricket Matches 1719-1880 (1929)
- Quoted in E.W. Swanton, Follow On, Collins, London, 1977, p. 207.
