This lot is an 1879 Rebound Wisden. One that had me vexed for a while. 

I have a very keen eye but this book had me going for a while becausewhen you open it up, the front cover looks like one that hasn't been made shiny and flicking to the rear it has the rear cover similar to say 1876, i thought for a while it was a variant and could explain why the 1878 has the wrong rear cover in 3 of the facsimile reprints. However after chatting it around with fellow collectors I think it has just turned out to be a rather dull (if Wisdens can ever be dull) 1879 Rebind without covers or rear adverts. What has happened is that a previous owner, or age by some means, has had an 1879 without covers or rear adverts and darkened or aged the front and back page, so much so when you open it (and forgetting it is a shny one) it looks like an original fornt cover, in fact it is just a title page which is the following page in the Wisden that is darker and at the rear - and this is a great coincidence - the final page that is in this book is the same page Wisden used as the rear cover of earlier 1870s Wisdens, that being a darker shade does make it feel like a rear cover after seeing all the other first 15 rear covers.  So there you go, here we have a very nice 1879 rebound Wisden without covers or rear adverts with the first and last page a little darker than the rest of the book. Bound in brown with gilt to the spine. I might keep it as it feels specialso if keen please grab it while you can.
