Wisden Year: 1865
Overall Condition: 10

Brand-new condition facsimile hardback of John Lillywhite's Cricketers' Companion for 1865.

Probably the last chance to get hold of a new copy of one of these.  A couple have sold and this is my very last copy for sale.

This facsimile was published in 2007 by Roger Heavens, who also published the facsmiles of Scores and Biographies.  It was a limited edition of 100 copies and retailed for £50, and has since sold out.  These are identical but un-numbered copies; I understand from the publisher these formed part of the original print run which over-ran the limited edition requirement by a handful of copies.

The facsmile is very well made, handsomely bound in green cloth with gilt lettering to cover and spine.  The inside includes a facsimile of the original wrappers.  The original is extremely scarce and near-impossible to obtain nowadays (a recent copy without original wrappers sold for £750) so the Heavens facsimile often appears in auction lots and dealer catalogues as part of a 'full' set.

What's in the book:

The Companions are packed with interesting reading for the cricket historian, and are arguably better than the corresponding Wisdens which were mostly just scorecards.  Contents include:

Condition report:
