DESCRIPTION

1923 Wisden Cricketers Almanack Original Hardback Cloth Covers.

The covers are in reasonable condition for age showing some signs of wear at the extremities with a couple of tiny spots where the cloth in worn through but these are very small. There is some very slight wrinkling to the spine

The gilt to the both the front cover and spine is a little worn but still reasonably bright and easily legible.

The contents are clean with no marks or inscriptions other than a former owners name written neatly in ink to the front title page. The photographice plate of the Five Cricketers of the Year is retained. The plate includes some great names, Andrew Sandham, A P Freeman etc.

A small slip of paper identifying a correction to page 220 is retained a rare additional item which I never seen before.

The binding has become slightly loose but the book is still held together well with no weakness at the hinges. The rear hinge has a small crack to the paper but remains strong.

I have tried to be as critical as possible but the faults are generally minor and this still remains a good copy of an early rare hardback.

Please email with any questions or for additional photos.

Postage will be by Special Delivery unless otherwise requested.

Overseas buyers welcome but please contact me in advance to confirm postage costs.
