Here we have for sale one of the rarest Wisdens, the second edition of the hardback run :

1897 Original Hardback in good+ condition.

I hope the photographs will show this book off as best as they can, it is a Wisden of two halves, internally it is very nice, complete ans clean some slight browning to the page edges , odd spot and magnificent photoplate. The boards however have been cleaned to the far edge and are a little dark towards that edge as can be seen in the pictures, tinyest touch up of gilt to odd letter where cleaning has taken place but hard to tell. The hinges are original but have a small amount of weakness as many of the early hardbacks do but far from off putting.

Fabulously priced and listed at £5,000 less than the market rate. (if you can find one). I belive the owner of this site found this the hardest hardback to obtain and had 2 1896s before his first 1897.
