DESCRIPTION

For three years in the 1920s Wisden produced a Rugby Almanac in a very similar format to the more famous big brother.  Publication ceased after the 1925-26 issue presumably because Wisden had failed to tempt buyers from the already established rival publication Rugby Annual which ran from 1913-4 to the outbreak of World War II.

All three issues were edited by Stewart Caine who later of course became editor of the Cricket Almanac.

The wrappers are blue/green in colour rather than the familiar yellow.

The set on offer here are the best that we have seen.

Save for a tiny tear to the bottom of the spine on the 1923-4 issue the books are all in fine condition.  The colour of the spine on the 1924-5 edition has faded slightly compared to the other two but this is only slight.

 Front and rear wrappers in each case are flat, bright and unmarked and the contents for all three years are in fine, complete, unmarked condition.

These annuals appeal both to collectors of the Cricket Almanac but also Rugby enthusiasts as well.  It is just a pity that the Almanac didn't survive beyond the third issue because undoubtedly the contents are more complete and comprehensive than the Rugby Annual of the same era.

 A fabulous set.
