DESCRIPTION

Please note the category may not be correct:

This 1920 Wisden is something of a conundrum.  As will be seen from the photographs the boards are identical to an original publisher’s hardback and both front and rear boards and spine are in immaculate condition. 

The front and rear pastedowns however are facsimiles. 

The remaining contents are complete, original, unmarked and in very good condition. 

At this time Wisden were offering a rebinding service to customers and the style of the rebinding used at this time was identical to an original hardback.  Many rebinds from this period, however, are distinguishable from the original hardback because the rebinds were made up in quantities and the last digit or two digits of the year were added in individual cases.  If this was a publisher’s rebind I would have expected the figure “0” or the figures “20” on the front board and spine to be slightly different from the rest of the  numbering and lettering.  They are not and match identically. 

The book was in this condition when I bought it.  My original thought was that it was a publisher’s rebind but the covers resemble an original hardback more than they do a publisher’s rebind. 

If you buy it and it is an original hardback then you have got yourself a bargain!
