This lot is an 1898 Original Hardback Wisden.

The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the third year of the hardback and an extremely hard copy to find, especially in this condition. I know of only 3 to be sold at auction in the last 2 to 3 years (one was on wisdenauction for £8500). 

The covers are in very good condition, slight mark to the left of the spine cloth on the picture, the gilt is bright to the front cover and to the spine without any restoration. Internally the book is also in magnificent condition. The front hinge has some weakness (but not split at all), the rear hinge is perfect. The only slight fault to note is that the book is a bit skew but the pages are clean with no foxing. A very hard year to find!

Please note the flash makes the book look like it has marks on the front board, this is just the camera, hence the flash and none flash pictures.

Please see the large pictures (click on "Click HERE to show full size image." under the image). More available on request.
