Wisden Year: 1950
Overall Condition: 7
Stock Number: 5069/001

This set is, in the main, 7/10 as the books are in pretty decent internal order. Externally there are the obvious issues with the dust jackets which have been stained to the spine and are generally musty - I think the whole set has been stored somewhere quite damp as most have spotting to the top of the page blocks and some of the 50's have slightly spotted spines.


I have taken a range of photos to show the good (decent boards, spines and gilt), the bad (some internal inscriptions and split hinges) and the ugly (Dust Jackets) so please review and drop me a line with any questions. There is the odd creased page in a couple of editions but as you can see from the page blocks they are minimal.


The hinges on all are very good (other than those listed below) and the boards are preety clean too with just the odd mark here and there. The 1950 is very good as are a few others to compensate for the weaknesses below and hence overall a 7/10 set.


The major faults are as follows:

Pencil price marks to pii of the 1969, 62 and 56

A detailed inscription to the front of the 1959 as shown

Name inscription to the 1964 which also has a slightly creased spine

Split front hinge of the 1961 as shown

Split front and rear hinge to the 1959 (mesh showing)


If you are in the South West then feel free to arrange a time to view and discuss - happy to look at swapping the 61 and 59 for better copies and other sets in better condition are available. All in all, a decent set for the money.


P&P if for the UK only - please contact me ahead of purchasing for overseas shipping quotes.

We still populating over 500 Hardbacks and 100+ Linen's on the site so please ask if there is anything in particular you are looking for - 90% of our stock is VGC (8/10) or better.

Many thanks,
