This lot is a fabulous oppurtunity to buy a Limited Edition Leather bound set from 1995 to 2015. So every Leather Bound Wisden Produced.
The leather Wisden started in 1995 where 100 copies were produced, the first 5 goto the Cricketers of the Year , so 95 copies to the general public minus the odd few to Wisden staff and friends of them.
In 1996 150 copies were produced so 1996+ is a full set also for the higher numbers.
This set is in fabulous condition. The books are all Numbered 134 although in 1995 there was no 134 so that is number 87.
This set is in near mint condition and each book has a Slip Case, they are all numbered inside and out and signed by the editor and a beautiful book with gold page block.
1995 Leather Wisdens are very rare and very expensive,two sold at auction in 2015 and they sold for £2824 and £2088 , you have to go back to a 1919 HB to be more expensive, the price is so high as many 1996+ set owners want a 1995.
This year the leather collectors were invited to buy a ticket to the official Wisden Dinner held in the long room, I have been twice and it is a great evening.
You will have the option to buy 2016 from Wisden and continue the set numbered 134.
Finding a full run with 1995 is a hard task with so few out there not taken.
I would heartly recommend the Leather books as they are beautiful.
Please see the large photos, more available on request.
