DESCRIPTION

Hi,

This lot is an 1916 Original Hardback Wisden.

This World War One Hardback is very hard to find especially in this condition.

Boards: mostly very good with no bumping or dents. There is evidence, though, of (professional) repair to the bottom 3cms of the spine, where it meets the front board. This is clearly shown in the photo. The cloth on the spine is a little thin, perhaps; not approaching anything concerning, but just a little lighter than on the boards.

 

Gilt: very good on both front board and spine; the spine gilt is much better to the naked eye than it appears in the photo, for some reason. 

Binding: very nice and tight. Hinges are strong and guttering complete.

 

Contents: excellent. No faults at all. 

Overall, an very good copy with the repair to the spine being the only point of note.

Buy-it-now.

Apologise for only twophotos , more photos are available on request.

Payment: Cheque or BACS (please contact us if from outside the UK)

Postage: Free, worldwide which covers special delivery fully insured & Jiffy Bag.

Happy Collecting.

Cheers

Chris
