DESCRIPTION

This 1916 Wisden original hardback is in VERY NEAR FINE condition.  

The front and rear boards are really flat,  bright and unmarked   and the gilt is  really bright to the front cover  .

The gilt is also very bright to the spine which itself is sturdy and very clean with just the odd tiny crease. 

There is an ongoing debate about the spine gilt on the 1916.Over the years I've handled more than a few 1916 hardbacks and whilst it's true than on many copies the gilt has faded or dropped off I have also seen a significant number where the gilt has remained and the 16 offered for sale here falls into that category.I am as sure as I can be that the gilt has not been restored.

The front and rear hinges are very good with no restoration .

The front  and rear yellow endpapers are really bright and unmarked

The contents - including the photoplate are in fine .clean,unmarked condition .

The book has had no restoration as far as I can tell .

 


 A really nice copy and one of a number of fine condition early hardbacks that we are presently listing.

Forther photos available on request.
