DESCRIPTION

Hi,

 

This is a very special 1895 Wisden, rebound by Wisden in the middle of the 20th Century to mimic an 1896 hardback, a quirky Wisden that will appeal to some. The similarities to a hardback are that the paste downs are yellow (with a Liverpool cricket club stamp) , the gilt on the covers and spine are identical to that of an 1896. It is slightly smaller by 1/8th inch , smoky top to page block and severe foxing around photo plate but condition is less important, the uniqueness is what will appeal. Purchased from Chris Saunders in 2006.

Hard to price up but Gorringes sold a similar copy (spine less like an 1896) for £750+20% http://www.gorringes.co.uk/asp/fullCatalogue.asp?salelot=LSEPT08++844+&refno=10148111

P&P Free send it via special next day delivery. 

Please see all the pictures. More available on request.

Cheers

Chris
