DESCRIPTION

Hi,

This lot is an 1945 Original Wisden , Rebound with Covers

In Very Good condition. 

The boards mimic the hardback (apart from sporting handbooks to the base of the spine) and from a distance (apart from the fact the boards look new) it looks like a hardback Wisden. The covers inside are bright , one small mark to the top, internally a very clean book indeed. Overall a very nice Wisden with the hardback twist. Small amount of trimming. 

Please ask any questions.

Please see the large pictures. More available on request.

Buy-it-now.

More Photos on request.

Payment: Card or Cheque or BACS or Paypal

Postage: £4.90 which covers first recorded delivery & Jiffy Bag.

Happy Collecting!

Cheers

Chris

Q: Ah well I've bought this one now. I'll maybe investigate local binders and take it along to see what they say. Cheers, Gerry.  posted by: Mungogerald  07/01/2018 14:48:00

Q: Chris, having searched on the web for Sporting Handbooks, I suspect they are no longer in business? Is this correct? If so, do you know if any other book binders would be prepared, and indeed permitted, to carry out a similar rebind now? Gerry  posted by: Mungogerald  07/01/2018 14:32:09
A: Hi Gerry,Sorry no idea and it may not even be them as it is just mimicking the HB which has Sporting Handbooks on the HB. Any local expert could do it, I know a few but none local to you and you really need to speak to them in person to get the best job. Cheers Chris

Q: Hi Chris, I like the idea of the rebind being done in the style of the original hardback covers. I also note it is a "publisher's rebind". Is that Sporting Handbooks? If it is, do you know if they are prepared to do similar rebinding to other Wisdens and, if so, any idea of the cost. Regards, Gerry  posted by: Mungogerald  07/01/2018 14:12:09
A: Hi Gerry, I am not sure who does these rebinds, I guess any pro book binder could if you took them an example but I think it would be an expensive job , but still cheaper than a HB. This one is technically not a publishers rebind as is known from a pure sense, they are the ones bound in brown boards with year added later on (and don't look too much like the pre 1937 HBs but close). You do see a few of these 1940-1946 bound like this but I wondn't say they were common. Happy New Year, Cheers Chris
