Lionel Palairet (1870-1933) made 15,777 career runs and was the first great batsman for Somerset, for whom he scored all of his 27 first-class centuries. His father, five times archery champion of England, was instrumental in Somerset becoming a first-class county. Lionel was well educated and a stylish batsman. This book shows a private family man, well-respected and a good organiser; whose contributions particularly to cricket and golf have gone unnoticed.
