Wisden Year: 1870
Overall Condition: 9

This 1870 Wisden Cricketer's Almanac is in it's original wrappers and is in fabulous condition.

The book is entirely unrestored.

The front and rear wrappers are flat and bright and without any of the usual chips or blemishes.

There is a tiny, closed tear to the bottom left hand corner of the front wrapper at the junction with the spine. 

The only drawback with the covers is, as will be seen from the photograph, that there is a slightly darkened rectangular area to the bottom right of the front wrapper.   I suspect that this has been caused by the removal of a bookseller's sticker at some point in the book's career.  

The spine is entirely original, 1870 has been written in ink to it and there is just the odd tiny chip or mark.  

The covers are in an exceptional condition, almost the best I have seen on a book of this vingtage.

Internally, the book is complete, original and unmarked.

A really fine copy and probably in at least as good a condition as an 1870 that I sold on Wisden Auction in 2015 for £4,500.00.
