Q: Hi I know next to nothing about Wisden but am looking to buy a very good quality 1951 original hardback for a dear friend's 70th birthday. He has collected since 1971 so this will hopefully be a nice surprise. Having seen his collection they are all hardback but have yellow dust covers? I appreciate that the book shown does not have a dust cover but would be interested to know whether these can be sourced, if so could you recommend please. Finally to the listing itself you list it as very good condition (I assume for a 70 year old book). Do you feel it would be suitable as a gift for a collector? Many thanks Mark Wright  posted by: Malvern_Mark  26/05/2021 11:53:22
A: Hi Mark - I would say that this book would be suitable for 99.9% of collectors :) Wisden only started producing dust covers for their editions in 1965 so anything before then was published in just brown boards - your friend will understand this. There have been replica dust covers produced over the years to project the boards but I would leave it to your friend to source as they have more than likely bought them in a set and will have one touched away somewhere for the years that they have yet to collect - hope this helps, James
