The left-hand pages have short biographies of cricketing figures, sometimes including examples of their signatures in facsimile. The right-hand pages have spaces for collecting actual autographs.

Following is a list of all of the actual signatures in this book, as we have been able to decipher them (there may be a few spelling errors due to the illegibility of the signature or the illiteracy of the bookdealer), and the days on which they are found: Feb 27: V[?] Winchester; Mar 1: H J Trevethick 1/10/12; Mar 28: D C Kibblewhite; Mar 31: Clare Nicholson; Apr 21: [?] Siams; May 9: Pat March; May 10: J M Park; May 12: R S M Innes; June 30: W H Harvey 3/10/12; Jul 20: H S Hamilton[?] 1/10/12; H S M Simpson; Aug 7: [?] Miller; Aug 20: W R Brown; Sep 11: G F Lomas; Oct 5: L[?]andyside; Oct 7: [?] Alsop; Oct 8: D J Pinel; Nov 19: Len Withers. ; 8vo
