Wisden Year: 9999
Overall Condition: 9
Number of Books in the Set: 4

Nearly-new condition Hardbacks for 2004-07, not quite 'Benno standard' (tip-top perfect) but relatively clean and also unmarked inside, so are ideal for a new collector or as a gift to a cricket fan.  Especially one you're happy to keep very quiet indeed on their birthday!

The fixed price is very low as I'm just selling some of my spare copies and I want to get these into the hands of someone who will appreciate them.  The list price of all four books is £149!  I'm selling these at the price I paid for them, although the postage will cost me over £9 so I've had to factor that into the listing price.  You won't find a better deal if you're after a shelf-full of recent Wisdens!

What's in them:

These books are packed with interesting reading for the cricket fan.  Contents include:
The Ashes 2002-03 in Australia (we lost)
The Ashes 2005 in England (we won!)
The Ashes 2006-07 in Australia (we lost again)
How English cricket turned around in 2004 (we won almost everything!)
Strauss, Colly and Flintoff as cricketers of the year
2003 World cup
The birth of Twenty20
Interesting article on Sydney Pardon, editor of Wisden 1891-1925
Obituaries of Fred Trueman, Kerry Packer, Keith Miller and David Sheppard

Condition report:

The books are in nearly-new condition, although they have been read thoroughly by myself.  Expect some minor 'shelf dinking' on tops and bottoms of spines.  2004 has a slightly faded D/J spine and looks a little thumbed on the pageblock.  All very minor faults really - 2005 looks like it just came off the printing press.

Overall four very decent copies and all itching to be read.  The books will be posted in the UK at no extra cost to the buyer, by 1st Class Recorded post in a small padded box.  A full refund will be given on return of the books, if my description is thought to be inaccurate.  Obviously this would be a disaster considering the weight of the things, so please read my description and look at the photographs thoroughly before buying, and ask me any questions if you're unsure.

Overseas buyers - I will probably need to charge something extra to cover the shipping costs, but costs will never ever be more than the actual shipping price paid. Please correspond with me after the auction, or even better, ask in advance for a quote if you're not in the UK.

Seller accepts PayPal payments
Payment Details: Payment by cheque or postal order is preferred, but Paypal is ok.
