Greville Stevens

Greville Thomas Scott Stevens (1901-1970)
Wisden Cricketer of the year 1918 (as a schoolboy at University College School)
Played for Oxford University, Middlesex and England (captained them once and lost(!) versus South Africa)

I was in a charity book shop in Thame and I saw a cricket book (nothing special) but it had an autograph on the inside. Being a Middlesex fan I knew the name "Greville Stevens" and, although I didn't buy it immediately, I went back later and took a chance (it could have been anyone's signature).
I've checked the autograph against others online and, Yes, it is THE Greville Stevens. (The who? you might say). May not be worth a fortune but I'm happy with it.
