Here we have a rare 1903 Original Hardback Wisden, it is in Very Good Condition and without restoration. Just the 8th Wisden Hardback.

In 1903 Wisden forgot to ad in hinges strengtheners hence the hinges after 110 years tend to give way, I have never seen one with storng original hinges.

The lettering (gilt) is very bright to both the front board and the spine, the boards are very good, nice and clean , 2 dot maks to front board (bottom right and on spine 2 inches from the top) , some wear to spine cloth but otherwise the outside of this book is splendid.

So the hinges, they are weak, but not restored and it is not falling apart, just a bit tender. Internally it is very nice, some spotting by the picture a very good copy of this rare Wisden. That is usually touched up.

Please see the large photographs.

More photographs available on request.
