Wisden Year: 1874
Overall Condition: 7

On offer here is an 1874 Wisden that has it's original front wrapper together with a facsimile spine and rear wrapper.

After the 1875 and 1864 and perhaps the 1869, 1874 is the rarest of all Wisden and I think only one has been offered for sale on Wisden Auction before.

This copy retains it's original front wrapper but as will be seen from the photograph it has areas of darkening and discolouration and the bottom right hand corner has been restored.  

The first few pages also have areas of discolouration but in my view these do not detract from the book itself.  The discolouration lessens so that by the time you reach page 11 there is no trace.  The remaining contents are complete, original and in very nice condition.

The last page has the remains of a sellotape mark to it.  

The spine and facsimile rear cover have been very sympathetically done and are in fine condition.

Overall this is a very presentable copy of a very rare book.


If a prospective purchaser would prefer I could have the book rebound by Scriveners Bookbinders in Buxton, Derbyshire who do a fabulous job of rebinding Wisden in a variety leather and cloth bindings. Don't hesitate to ask for details.


Postage is £8.95 by Royal Mail Special Delivery.  If intending to buy from outside the UK mainland please contact us before buying to ascertain methods of payment and prices of postage.
