Wisden Year: 1897
Overall Condition: 8
Tick if No Reserve:


 This is the second edition of this inspiring work by Ranji, quite possibly the best batsman ever taking into account the wickets he excelled on!

The book is 443 pages with over 100 illustrations of great players of the time in action including Ranji, WG Grace, Tom Hayward, Lord Hawke, Lord Harris and FS Jackson.

The book is dedicated "By Her Gracious Permission" to "Her Majesty the Queen -Empress"! 

The book has a green hardback cover. The title of the book and author are stated  in very bright gilt on the spine. The covers are fine.

The book overall is in very good condition, particularly considering its age, and appears to have been bequethed to Repton school library by HR Altham who has signed the book. The school  emblem and motto is shown on the inside cover along with the words "Altham Bequest". On that same page is a library reference number I think in pencil apart from one letter in red ink.

This is a tight copy with some minor foxing and brown staining to the pages and a few of the illustrations including the first one of Ranji. I shall send the book to the winner by first class recorded post.
