DESCRIPTION

Hi,

This lot is an 1899 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition

The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the fourth year of the hardback and an extremely hard copy to find, especially in this condition. Since 2006 I have seen 6 for sale and one of those was without a plate.

The front board is very clean with excellent gilt, the rear board is pretty much mark free and the spint gilt is very bright. There is a very outside chance that the 18 of 1899 has been regilded on the spine but I may be being paranoid.

The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns in top condition, two small nicks to the front right. The photoplare is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. 

A rare Wisden in superb condition and a very nice price. 

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
