Volume One of David Woods' four-volume history of Bristol City, from the club's beginnings to the modern age. Bristol City enjoy a long, though relatively unsuccessful history. Without doubt, their most successful period is the one covered by this book. During those years, City were runners-up in the English top division and made their one and only appearance in the FA Cup final. The story of how the Babe of Bristol football scaled such heights so quickly after their formation in 1894 is detailed within these pages. This book also covers the development of the Association Rules game in the capital of the West Country. It features the key personalities of the age Sam Hollis (who had three lengthy spells as Citys manager), Bill Hodgkinson (ex-Secretary of Eastville Rovers who did much good work for Bristol City), and that colossus of Victorian sport, the incomparable Dr WG Grace. The doctor helped Southville become the first south Bristol team to challenge the dominance of the east Bristol clubs. A nostalgic look down memory lane, which should be treasured by supporters of Bristol City FC.
