DESCRIPTION

Wisden 1934 Hardback

 

An original hardback featuring the bodyline tour of Australia, the obituary of the great Ranji, plus a visit by West Indies in the very warm and dry summer of 1933.

 

The book is generally in good condition but please don’t bid if:

1)    You are not happy with enhancement of the gilt.  In this case the gilt has been replenished albeit somewhat sympathetically – probably has also been enhanced by the artificial light used to photograph the front cover.  

2)    You need the hinges to be perfect.  Here, the rear hinge is slightly split two-thirds of the way down causing some weakening.

3)    You need the book to be entirely free of annotations.  In this case a previous owner has marked some 30 pages, mostly with small lines as shown in the examples.  Otherwise the pages are quite clean with no sign of any foxing.

 

The boards have some slight wear on the exposed edges and at top and bottom of spine, but are generally in excellent condition.  I have a total of fifteen pictures of this book available to those interested.   Because of the imperfections listed above, I’ve listed this book with what I believe to be a fair reserve.

 

Payment by cheque only please. The book will be despatched next day special delivery at no additional cost to the buyer.
