Wisden Year: 9999
Overall Condition: 8

On offer here is a full set of Lillywhite's Cricketers' Companions - the full 21 year set from the first issue in 1865 to the last in 1885.

They have all been rebound without their covers some time ago in four volumes which, as will be seen from the photographs, have immaculate red leather spines.  

The front and rear boards are rebound in red quarter leather.

Overall condition is excellent.  

There are some scuff marks to the corners of the volume containing the editions from 1865 to 1871 but otherwise the covers are in immaculate condition and certainly look excellent on the shelf.

All the original green wrappers have been removed.  As far as I am aware apart from the wrappers all pages are complete and original.  

There is the odd light foxing to one or two of the books but overall internally the condition is excellent.  If further photographs are required please do not hesitate to ask.

It is a shame that the Lillywhite Guides, Companions and Annuals didn't achieve the same longevity as Wisden.  There is certainly more cricket content in these early year Companions as there is in the Wisden of the comparable year.

A complete set in at least very good condition.

Postage £25.00 Royal Mail Special Delivery.
