Full scores of important matches played between 1771 and 1791. Epps was not the first publication of scores of grand matches of cricket. As explained in his Apology, this book was a supplement to the regular annual publication, by Mr Britcher Epps set out to record details of the principal matches omitted from Britchers scores, with notes on some of the games. Although many important matches are omitted, Arthur Haygarth informed Ashley-Cooper that, but for Epps work, Volume I of Cricket Scores and Biographies would not have been nearly complete as it is. This is a facsimile reprint of this very rare book, first published in 1799, with a new frontispiece and a new introduction by David R Allen.
