Here we have a rare 1916 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. The 21st Wisden Hardback and the most expensive of the 20th Century. The rarest or second rarest since 1900.
The lettering is always an issue on 1916s , i guess they were rationed on the gold leaf in 1916, however the front board has very good gilt for a 1916. The spine is faded and no dot after the year which is correct. Small name to first page corner.
The boards are very good a small lifting of the cloth for 1cm by 3cm on the front if being picky and a dot mark to the rear boards but they are nice.
Inside the hinges are very good, both are springy! Amazingly clean inside including the yellow pastedowns and photoplate. Minimal foxing.
A lovely book. Rare,
Please see the large photographs.
