Wisden Year: 1901
Overall Condition: 8

This 1901 Wisden in it's original wrappers is in excellent condition.

The book is entirely original and the spine is sturdy and strong.

The front and rear wrappers have just the odd mark but are complete and bright and in very sound condition.

Internally, the book is complete, original, unmarked and in excellent condition with just some foxing to the tissue guarding the photographic plate.

An excellent copy.

Q: Hello Andrew, Received the books yesterday. Overall they are in great condition, three of the best I have seen for that era,. The 1901 and 1903 I think (and I could be wrong) have had some work done on account of the wrappers not opening easily. In the case of the 1901 this could be because of what you said about the overlaid spine, but I dont think it would have lasted 116 years without someone forcing it and damaging it. The 1905 is the best for me (as the cover opens 180 degrees quite happily) in spite of tiny nicks to the spine. Anyway, I am impressed with all three, would you accept £600 for all three? Regards Graham  posted by: grimble  26/04/2017 11:24:10
A: Hello Graham, Yes,£600 is great and I'm pleased you like them. You could well be right about the 01 and 03.Your point about how easily the book opens could be a pointer to whether the book has had work done to it .It's not something that I'd not thought about before but I'm sure you're right. Just to keep my records straight with Chris could you click to buy each of the three books on the WA site and I'll then send you an amended invoice for £600 inclusive of postage of course. Good luck with the first fifteen - I assume you're not going to compromise and will look for all original books. All the best, Andrew

Q: Hello, Has this book had any repair work at all? Regards Graham  posted by: grimble  17/04/2017 12:29:31
A: Hello Graham, Many thanks for your interest. I'm certain that the 01 hasn't had any restoration.As you probably know there was a problem with the production of the 01 softbacks.I think the wrong year was put on the spine or something similar .The majority had to have the spine overlaid and you can see that that has happened here.It is however all original and a really nice copy. The 03 is a brilliant copy.The wrappers and contents are in fine condition.I've not had the spine restored,It's possible that the spine has had a touch up before I bought it,If it has been resored it's been really well done. If you are interested in one or both I suggest I send them down to you without any obligation and you can have a close look at them - Ithink that's the only way you can make a proper decision. All the best, Andrew
