Wisden Year: 1875
Overall Condition: 9

This is possibly the best Wisden that we have offered for sale to date on Wisden Auction.

The book on offer here is an 1875 Wisden that has been rebound some time ago in green quarter leather with brown boards.

The title and year appear in gilt to the spine.

The boards are in excellent condition.  

The front wrapper has been preserved and is in fine condition. 

The book lacks the rear wrapper. 

The remaining contents - pages 1-212 are in immaculate, clean, unmarked condition and this is as good an example of an 1875 as we have seen.

In the past couple of years we have sold two 1875s - both rebound without the wrappers and each has sold in region of £19,000.00.

The book on offer here has the original front wrapper in fine condition and we think therefore that the suggested price - £22,500.00 is just about right.

In today's market we would estimate that a rebound copy retaining both wrappers would be in the region of £27,000.00 or thereabouts and a copy still completely in the original wrappers and not rebound would certainly be worth in excess of £30,000.00.

If any additional photographs are required or any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

The front and rear hinges are strong and the contents are in excellent, complete, unmarked fine condition.

A very nice example.
