DESCRIPTION

Hi,

This lot is an 1903 Original Hardback Wisden. In Good + condition

The gilt to the boards is very bright and the boards in generally are really good but if you lok at the front board at an angle in the light you can see some darkness to it.

What is really nice about this book are the hinges. 1903s break all the time, this is one of two I have held that hasn't got a broken hinge. Now the front hinge has a line on it that makes it look weak but it is still strong. The rear hinge is excellent which is so rare. The yellow pastedowns in good condition some darkness around the edge of the front one as is the pageblock. Nice clean pages and excellent photoplate. 

Roger Hancock (brother of Tony) has his book plate to the front pastedown, 

Please see the large pictures. More available on request. 

Buy-it-now.

Payment: Cheque or BACS or CARD or Paypal.

Postage: Free which covers special delivery fully insured & Jiffy Bag.Contact us if outside of the UK as we need to check insurance etc.

Happy Collecting.

Cheers

Chris
