The review of the 1878 season in Lillywhite's Cricketers' Annual admitted that 'the idea of a visit from an Australian team...was at first treated as something of a joke' but the success of the tour did much to spark the international rivalry. Including a victory over the MCC at Lord's and controversy and skulduggery involving WG Grace, this book chronicles the adventures of the first representative Australian touring team.
