DESCRIPTION

Hi,

This must be the nicest original Wisden I have ever held, it is an Original 1871 Paperback , the 8th Edition. 

For a book that is 128 years old it is in fabulous condition, there is some light creasing to the covers and a small dot stain to the back cover, some speckling to front cover. The spine paper is complete and the book is very tightly bound, it is one of those finds where the original owner must have bought it and put it in a draw for 100 years. Minimal foxing on the odd couple of pages, I haven't vigorously checked every page for fear of damaging such a lovely Wisden but on light scanning all pages are present and are nice and white. 

Please see all the photographs, more available on request.

A once in a decade copy.

This Wisden is being listed to celebrate the sites 6 month anniversary hence it is listed without reserve.

Postage to the UK is free with £10,000 insurance, if the value exceeds this then I will make arrangements so that it is fully covered.

There may be a charge to non uk households because of postal insurance. The standard is just £500. 

Happy bidding,

Chris
