This lot is an 1897 Original Hardback Wisden. In Very Good condition.
This is the second hardback issued by Wisden and in my experience the rarest, especially when in very nice condition.
The front board has excellent gilt, a couple of small marks and a tiny bit of rubbing but overall very good to the front, the spine cloth and gilt is excellent and original , a tiny bit of darkness to the spine cloth if being picky. The rear board has a mark to it but not off putting.
The front hing is strong and the yellow pastedowns excellent. Internally nice and clean with great photoplate.
There is some weakness to the rear hinge but the book is tightly bound. Some darkness to the page block but out of all the 1897s I have seen this is in the top 3.
A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price, we would have bid a lot more on this book and hence passing on the savings.
Please see the large pictures. More available on request.
