DESCRIPTION

For sale here is an 1899 Wisden Publisher's Hardback in absolutely immaculate condition - almost as new.

The book has had no restoration.

As can be seen from the photographs, the front and rear boards are in immaculate condition with the gilt in fine condition to the front board.

The spine is in similar fine condition with the gilt bright.  The only tiny blemish with this book is that the gilt to the "r" of the word "cricketers'" on the spine has faded a little.

Internally the front and rear hinges are extremely strong - the book has an almost unopened feel to it.

The front and rear yellow end papers are in immaculate, bright condition as are the remaining contents and photographic plate which are all complete, original and in near mint condition.

This is probably the best early hardback that we have seen.


 

 

Postage is by Royal Mail First Class Recorded.  If intending to buy from outside the UK mainland please contact us before buying to ascertain methods and prices of postage.
