DESCRIPTION

For sale here is an original 1864 Wisden which has recently been beautifully rebound in green cloth with a green leather spine and the title and year in gilt to the spine. The binding is identical to several others we are listing and has been done by Scriveners Bookbinders in Buxton, Derbyshire.

The original wrappers have not been preserved but the book is otherwise complete.

The title page has had a tiny amount of restoration to the page edges but otherwise the contents are entirely unrestored, complete, original and in very nice condition with just the odd spot or mark but really in excellent condition.

As a bonus, the book is signed "to the reader" page by Charles Pardon, the editor of the Almanac from 1887 to 1891. The book doesn't appear to be a presentation copy but appears to have been Pardon's own copy.

A very rare book in excellent condition, brilliantly rebound, with the added bonus of the signature and offered at a very competitive price.

 

Postage is by Royal Mail Special Delivery.
