DESCRIPTION

Hi,

This lot is an 1948 Original Hardback Wisden,

The main thing to note re this book is that the hinges are both weak and the gilt is faded in all areas, 1948s are hard to find in decent condition but this is only just better than a reference/reading copy.

More Photos on request.

Payment: Paypal or Cheque

Postage: £4.50 which covers first class recorded & Jiffy Bag.

Happy Bidding.

Cheers

Chris

Q: Chris, in picture 4 why are the pages different shades?  posted by: Parky611  06/07/2012 10:56:28
A: Hi, 1948 is my nemesis and this is one reason. 99.9% of them have a block of brown pages in the middle, it is the same for all books and the theory is is that the paper restrictions were still in place post war and so many pages were poor quality but they had nicer pages wrapped around them. 1919 has a similar oddity , first half is a different shade to the second half! I am still waiting for the 0.01% but all 48s have them (see the other listing too), never a great year is 48 :-( Cheers Chris
