This lot is an 1878 Original Paperback Wisden. It is in Original form but the rear cover is facsimile as is the spine. 

As with all 1878s (& 1879s) the front cover is heavily worn, thank goodness the shiny page era lasted just 2 years.

Internally this book is very nice and clean just a bit of foxing to the first few pages. A couple of spots to the page block and a small indentation to the first few pages with some light foxing to the rear. 

A hard year to find.

15th Edition.

Please see the large pictures. More available on request.

Q: Hi Chris . . . . . . Why is this 1878 all but twice the price of the 1879, and it has facs rear and spine!! . . . Is it twice as rare? . . Also, while I'm complaining . . . there are 25 04's on WA, and not one of them meets my requirements . . . . Hope all is well in Holmfirth . . are you getting swept along by the Huddersfield Town euphoria? Regards Graham  posted by: grimble  21/08/2017 10:50:44
A: Hiya from the med, on the bus to a random beach , 78s are many times rarer than 79s prob why the box set stopped at 78, 73 seems easiest first 15 , 78s have that awful shiny cover so find a nice one and it's a fortune, early pbs getting harder n harder to find , no idea why they are 5 times cheaper than hbs, I'll keep an eye out for you. Chris
