DESCRIPTION

 

A 1931 Hardback in Very Good condition. This book is one of over 80 Wisdens that we are listing from a Newcastle Gentlemen's private collection. There is no reserve.

As you can see from the pictures, the boards are in very good condition with just a couple of faint marks to the boards and some very slight darkening to the spine.  The spine has been bumped at both ends causing some slight creasing and fading to the material.  The corners have been slightly bumped causing a tiny amount of wear to the material but nothing major. The gilt is in place on the front and spine and is bright.

The hinges are good albeit weak at the front with some splitting to the paper in a couple of places. The pages are complete, including the Photoplate and are clean apart from the odd tiny mark to a couple of the pages (barely visible), 'Ridley College - Auty Library' written neatly in ink on the inside cover and a small booksellers stamp on the second inside page.  The edges of the pages have browned through age.  

The overall impression of this book is very attractive and due to its huge size normally tends to be very wobbly with a creased spine and broken hinges. However, with regards to this copy, this is not the case and is much better than the average copy. This is a lovely book.

 

Postage is by Special Delivery to the UK. Overseas buyers welcome postage will be charged for sending the book and requiring this to be signed for to ensure safe delivery.
