DESCRIPTION

This is the 'Laker Wisden' recounting his exploits against the touring Australians and this copy does full justice to his efforts. There is the usual bobbling to the spine although very minor and the spine gilt is slighly duller than perfect however the board gilt is bright and the boards themsleves are unmarked with just the bumps to the corner keeping this to 8/10 for the year.

Hinges are both great and internally this is clean and bright as is the  page block. Pages 401-408 have previosuly been folded back at the top corner as shown but are far from dog-eared! This is just a very good edition.

We are in the process of adding over 500 post-war Wisden’s into our shop so if you don’t see what you need, please contact us as 90% of our editions are VGC or better and there are multiple editions per year to choose from.

 

Postage: We use Royal Mail to ship all orders. Individual volumes are packaged in a padded Jiffy bag while multiple volumes are individually bubble wrapped and boxed to ensure they arrive with you in the condition they left us! We will always combine postage where possible.

 

Quality: We take pride in our product listings and take time to provide an individual description of each edition. If you are in any way dissatisfied when you receive your purchase from us we will happily swap the item for another from the shop or provide a full refund.

 

Descriptions: We started the Badger Sett because in compiling my own collection, one of the hardest things I found to navigate were the various descriptions used by sellers. I found that their interpretations of what constitutes a Wisden in Very Good Condition (VGC) for example were different to mine and so to give you confidence in our honest descriptions, here is a short overview of what you should expect:

 

 

Viewing: If you live locally or are visiting Somerset then please contact us and we will arrange a viewing slot here at the Badger Sett for you to hand-pick the volumes of your choice - our postcode is BA6 9SW.
