Wisden Year: 1897
Overall Condition: 9

For sale here is an 1897 Wisden Publisher's Hardback in absolutely immaculate condition - probably the best that we have seen.A really FINE example.

The book has had no restoration.  

The front and rear boards are in flat, bright, almost as new condition.  To be really picky there is a tiny blemish at the junction of the front board and spine at the very top but this really is scarcely noticeable

The gilt is as new to the front board. 

The spine and spine gilt are in fabulous condition.  

The front and rear hinges are extremely strong and the yellow end papers, both front and rear, are bright and unmarked. 

The contents and photographic plate are complete, original, unmarked and in fine condition.

A fabulous copy of one of the very rarest Wisden.In my experience the 96 and 97 hardbacks are certainly the scarcest of all the hardbacks and come to the market very rarely and when they do they are very unlikely to appear in as good condition as the book offered here.

If buying from overseas please contact us before purchasing to check payment arrangements and postage details.
