Synopsis The full title of this book is The Story of the Scottish Bowling Association 1892-1922 with Notes on City and County Associations.

The book is arranged chronologically on a year-by-year basis and opens with a fascinating account of the way in which the Association was instituted in 1892, with one of its prime objectives being the standardisation of the game's rules. Thereafter, Association matters are summarised and results of national and international matches detailed. For each year there is also a page or two of 'City and County Notes'. Preceded by a short (two-page) index, the final section of the book provides information on county and district associations, and results of competitions.
