This lot is a 1940 Original Hardback Wisden in Good to Very Good Condition. For a 1940 this is closer to very good than good, plus it has not had any restoration which is rare as many 1940s (due to their usual poor condition) do.
The boards are clean but show some age and darkness , the gilt is starting to fade but original and better than many, more so on the spine than the front. Odd dot mark to the boards.
Internally the front hinge is weak and you can see a bit of mesh at the top of the book for 2 inches. Internally the pages are very good. Without restoration. Better than many 1940s. Some weakness at page 32.
This hardback was my Nemesis for 3 years and a hard book to find, pretty impossible in very good condition (Im still looking so let me know if you have one).
I have an alternative 1940 Hardback if needed, it is a lot cheaper as in a lot poorer condition. Please ask.
Please see the large pictures, taken with and without the flash. More available on request.
