DESCRIPTION

Wisden 1962 Hardback edition.

Reasonable hardback edition, probably a 6/10.  The gilt lettering has mostly worn off on the cover, slightly better on the spine.  The title and date are still legible though.  The book is nice generally, clean inside and no major faults, just it has the feel of having been very well read.  If this book were a cricketer it would be Richie Benaud - getting on a bit and a little rough around the edges having worked hard for many years, but still loveable and full of great stories as crisp as the day they happened.

If you collect reasonable hardback editions but aren't after perfection, this is for you!  At £24.99, this 1962 hardback is priced favourably in the hope of a quick sale.  You could expect to pay £35-40 in a bookshop for this sort of copy.

For those cricket fans amongst us, 1962 is one of the finest editions of the last century to read.  Australia toured England under the captaincy of Benaud, determined to play attractive yet fair cricket.  And a fantastic series ensued - if only there were more captains like Benaud nowadays!  The 1962 is a mine of information, articles by Gubby Allen and Jack Fingleton, a piece on Statham and Trueman, and a fascinating look at the Laws by HS Altham.  The five Cricketers of the Year were all Australians.

Any other questions, please do ask.  Other Wisdens for sale too - have a look!
