DESCRIPTION

Hi,

Here we have a very nice set of rebound Wisdens, from 1881 to 1887 all rebound with their original covers.

The rebinds are excellent, with gilt to spine, the books themselves are explained below, each of them is very clean internally and a delightful copy of an early Wisden:

1881 - Some spotting and small loss to covers otherwise very good.

1882 - Very light spotting to covers otherwise the best 1882 I have ever seen.

1883 - Bound in covers are poor, due to old tape mark, a couple of pages have spotting but still very white.

1884 - Small marks to covers otherwise excellent

1885 - Spine side of covers poor due to old tape mark otherwise very good.

1886 - Spine side of covers poor due to old tape mark otherwise very good.

1887 - Small marks to covers otherwise excellent

A set like this would cost over £5000 from major dealers, so very nicely priced.

Also, the buyer is entitled to a 1916 with covers for just £324 (£300 off) in the same binding, to keep the set togehter. (Subject to it still being available). http://www.wisdenauction.com/detail.asp?id=12211
