Estimate: £250/350
For the first time in several years, the captaincy remained unchanged for successive major tours. The tour selection was criticised, too many fast bowlers and not enough batsman, the selection of Denness as captain and the non selection of Jon Snow. In addition Boycott withdrew stating he was not fit enough mentally to return to Test cricket. Not good omens for the tour and it proved to be the case. England were destroyed by Lillee and Thomson and lost the series 4-0 with one Test drawn. Denness stood down from the captaincy and from playing due to lack of form just prior to the start of the fourth Test and John Edrich took over for this match. Denness returned to the captaincy in the firth Test which was lost but against all the odds in the sixth Test, England beat Australia by an innings and four runs with Denness scoring 188.

Estimate: £2500/3500
Godfrey Phillips featured the touring Australian cricketers heavily in their 1926 and 1930 advertising campaigns.

The cigarette case has very good provenance, it was purchased by an Englishman Joe Letts at a war-time auction held by the Red Cross during the Second World War, he had a slight interest in cricket but he valued the case more for the link it gave him with the country in which his sister had made her home (she married an Australian in World War 1). Whilst visiting his sister in Australia in 1959 he decided to try and found out who Arthur Phillips was and found through a newspaper that Bill Woodfull, who was a member of the 1926 touring party and captain of the 1930 Australian team and then [1959] a principal of a Melbourne Boys School, recalled that Phillips was Chairman and Managing Director of a big English company which had shown a number of kindnesses to the Australian Test teams of 1926 and 1930. There is an original 'Daily News' [Australia] newspaper report, dated 9th December 1959 detailing this, sold with the cigarette case. The case was later purchased by the vendors uncle, a cricket lover and collector of auction items who died around 20 years ago and left the case to the vendor. It has been in her family ever since
