DetailsTitle: Celtic - The Official Illustrated History 1888 - 1995
Author: Graham McColl
Published: 23 Oct 1995
SynopsisBased in the East End of Glasgow, Celtic were founded in 1887 by Brother Walfrid, an energetic, football-loving priest.
This official history covers the club's story right up to the present day, including great games such as the victory over Inter Milan in the 1967 European Cup Final, the first such win by a British team, and the careers of great players including Dalglish, McNeill, Gemmell and Collins.
It also includes an account of recent developments at the club, season-by-season statistics, and 200 photographs.
ReviewLike his later work 'An Essesntial History of Celtic' this Graham McColl book is almost like a 'begingers guide...'introduction to Celtic.
This 'coffee table' style book certainly scores more for style than substance but that's not to say it's bad.
While it might skip through the club's history a little too quickly for some tastes it does contain a fantastic collection of black and white as well as colour photographs.
Its worth owning for the pictures alone but it does also have a good facts and figures section at the end.
