This lot is an 1905 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition
The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the tenth year of the hardback and a year I have found hard to find recently, especially in this condition.
This is one of the nicest prewar hardbacks I have seen.
The boards are very clean with excellent, extremely bright gilt, a couple of tiny marks to the rear. The spine gilt is very bright and original.
The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns are amazing, so bright yellow it is hard to express. The photoplate is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. Hard to fault, if I had to pick something it is that when the book is on the desk gilt up there is a slight inward movement to the top right hand side of the book.
A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price.
Please see the large pictures. More available on request.
