This is a lot for anyone looking for a restoration project themselves or to send off for professional rebinding.

17 original paperbacks (15 with both front & rear covers) ranging from 1907 to 1936 all either just still bound or split in at least two parts. They are all complete with the exception of 1907 and one of the 1926's that are both missing their front covers.

In general the pages themselves are clean and bright for the age with actually very few dog ears or creases. The issues are in the main with the binding and spine paper which is either completely missing or eroded so badly as to be illegible. 

These are great candidates for rebinding and will give you uniformity on the shelf or, if you can find anyone, ideal for the additional of facsimile spines. Happy to send other photo's if required but have kept the starting price under £15 per copy as I would like these to go to a good home.

There are some nice suprises in here too as the 1914 for example is still fully bound with secure stictching just missing the spine paper.

They were part of a collection of paperbacks from 1905-1944 that I have listed here also in original form. P&P is to the UK only.

Many thanks,


We are in the process of adding over 400 post-war Wisden’s into our shop so if you don’t see what you need, please contact us as 90% of our editions are VGC or better and there are multiple editions per year to choose from.


Postage: We use Royal Mail to ship all orders. Individual volumes are packaged in a padded Jiffy bag while multiple volumes are individually bubble wrapped and boxed to ensure they arrive with you in the condition they left us! We will always combine postage where possible.


Quality: We take pride in our product listings and take time to provide an individual description of each edition. If you are in any way dissatisfied when you receive your purchase from us we will happily swap the item for another from the shop or provide a full refund.


Descriptions: We started the Badger Sett because in compiling my own collection, one of the hardest things I found to navigate were the various descriptions used by sellers. I found that their interpretations of what constitutes a Wisden in Very Good Condition (VGC) for example were different to mine and so to give you confidence in our honest descriptions, here is a short overview of what you should expect:



Viewing: If you live locally or are visiting Somerset then please contact us and we will arrange a viewing slot here at the Badger Sett for you to hand-pick the volumes of your choice - our postcode is BA6 9SW.

Payment Details: Bank Transfer Only - winning bidder will receive details on invoice
