DESCRIPTION

Hi,

Here we have a very rare 1903 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. The 8th Wisden Hardback.

As per all 1903s the hinges were broken, Wisden forgot the strengtheners and hence why you never see one with original hinges or just with broken ones, but I have had them proffesionally restored and you can hardly tell, otherwise a super book.

The lettering (gilt) is bright and strong to the front and to the spine. The front board is in excllent condition. The spine cloth has the odd mark and at an angle the rear board has a splattering of marks but not obvious unless you look under light.

The pastedowns are bright and yellow, and the pages very clean, some spotting around the photoplate tissue which is in very good condition. 1903 is a rare Wisden.

Please see the large photographs.

More photographs available on request.

Postage via Special Delivery with £2500 insurance, £8

Happy Collecting,

Cheers

Chris
