DESCRIPTION

Hi,

Here we have a rare 1919 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition.

In my opinion the rarest 20th Century Wisden Hardback.

The lettering (gilt) is bright and strong to both the front and the spine. The boards are excellent, the bok seems a bit warped but a heavy book on top should cure that , a bobbling line to the front cover to the right with a slight knock to the right of the front board. 

Inside the hinges are very good, very tightly bound. The yellow pastedowns are good, it looks like a bookplate has been removed from the first page, you need to look close but I would say it has been. HD Swan to the right yellow page.

Internally very good, Minimal foxing.  Nice photoplate. Couple of pages have dog ears. 

A lovely book, a few niggles but still fabulous. Rare,

Please see the large photographs.

More photographs available on request.

Postage via Special Delivery with £2500 insurance, Free

Happy Collecting,

Cheers

Chris
