Wisden Year: 1963
Boards: Good for age
Hinges: Both Strong
Front Gilt: Bright
Spine Gilt: Bright
Any Repairs?: No
Overall Condition: 9

A super condition 1963 Hardback, not absolutely perfect but will sit perfectly in any collection. Hoping for a quick sale so selling at a very decent price for the condition.

All new collectors should look to get a copy of the 1963 edition early on - it is one of the most interesting Wisdens for the "History of Wisden" article.  This chronicles the first hundred years of the almanack, with an invaluable page-numbering section allowing you to check if pages are missing from older copies, this can be a bit of a minefield otherwise.

Condition report:

The gilt is good on both the spine and cover - please see the photographs for a better idea

The hinges are both strong. They have a lot of life in them and won't be splitting anytime soon, although they could of course be tighter.

The spine of the book is slightly creased and 'bobbly' in places - fairly minor and nowhere near as bad as many 1963s.

Overall a very decent copy and one itching to be read.  The book will be posted in the UK by 2nd Class Recorded post in a padded jiffy bag.  A full refund will be given on return of the book, if my description is thought to be inaccurate.

Overseas buyers - I might need to charge something to cover the shipping costs, but costs will not  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.

Q: Hi I've just purchased your 1963 Wisden hardback at the price of GBP 24.99. I live in Australia and would appreciate you advising the postage cost via airmail. This is my first purchase on the site, I assume you just tell me the total cost and I pay? I'll have to pay by PayPal if that is okay as it is the easiest way for me being overseas. Happy to cover the % PayPal charges you to transact this way (providing that is not against site rules). Cheers and thanks mate, Mark Spooner Sydney, Australia  posted by: sherb  18/09/2010 01:14:04
