Cardwell, Ronald - The George Garnsey Bookplate

New limited edition, 12 pages



Limited to 50 copies, this short essay focuses on one of Australia’s first known early cricketer-collectors, who represent ted NSW briefly during the Golden Age.

Garnsey was associated with the Burwood District CC (now Western Suburbs) and Ronald Cardwell, the president of the Sydney branch of the Australian Cricket Society has one of Garnsey’s original books, a history of his old club, which includes his bookplate, commissioned and drawn by the celebrated Norman Lindsay in 1910-11.

One newspaper said of his collection, sold to the NSW Cricket Association at the end of his playing days, ‘that it is doubtful if there is a collection of rare books equal to it in the hands of anyone’.
