DESCRIPTION

Hi,

Here with have a set of 62 Wisdens from 1949 to 2010, they are in reasonable to good condition and would suit a new collector to help start them on their way back to 1864!   The set is what you would expect from a set of Wisdens in this era and a great way to start a Wisden Collection at under £20 a book!!

They are all Original Hardbacks and from 1965 (when introduced) the books have their original dust jackets.

Some things to point out:

The books are froma  well loved set so there is the odd mark and read feel to some of the books, I have pointed out any defects below (I hope I have spotted them all), I have tried to rate the books too, the dust jackets all have light marks and small nicks to them unless stated, if not stated the hinges are strong and the lettering is bright.  if you would like to know more, please ask.

Buy Now, Postage is £45 for UK (or pick up from West Yorkshire) it is about £400 to send to Australia - this set http://www.wisdenauction.com/detail.asp?id=14734  cost £380 to send, but this may be counteracted by the current exchange rate.

P&P for anything sold by CAT12 is always actual rate

This set is a combination of 2 smaller sets I procured and so it is nice to keep them togehter but I can switch any book if required. I can even find a super set if required but would be circa £2000.

Payment via Cheque or BACS Please (Please contact me prior to purchase if you need to pay by paypal or outside the UK).

We are not accepting offers for this set as it is a great price.

Happy Collecting,

Cheers

Chris
