Product Description

This is a SUPER 1893 Wisden paperback, the 30th edition.

This 1893 has professionally-made facsimile covers and spine and they look stunning. as you would expect they are delightful. The covers and spine are made true to the originals and they have the effect of making this edition look stunning.

Internally the contents are excellent. The photo-plate is also in very good  condition. The pages within are in lovely condition. The page edges are a little dusty, but after all this is a 125 year old Wisden! The internal front and rear advertising pages are also facsimiles.

A genuine 8/10

Every listing in this auction is a book from a Wisden Collectors’ Club member. Their aim, along with mine is to allow a Wisden they no longer require to go to a fellow collector to read and enjoy. The Wisden Collectors’ Club does not take any fee at all – every single penny including the postage the winner pays, goes to the seller. You will see books listed in our auctions that have equivalents on the website that is my business (Wisdenworld) and you will see that they sell for more on Wisdenworld. That is a consequence that I am prepared to take in order for collectors to have a true and genuine opportunity of buying and selling Wisdens to each other. As a business I hope it also builds up loyalty and trust in both the WCC and Wisdenworld.
You will see that the listing style on both the WCC and Wisdenworld is the same, this is done to save time – being realistic, the WCC auctions take a lot of time so I try and make it easy for myself, hence the similar styles.

In this current auction (and throughout 2019) after agreement with all sellers a percentage of the final sale price plus ALL Proceeds (including Postage) from books taken from the Latest Offers And Giveaways section of the website will be split between The Alzheimer’s Society and The Kings Arms Project (Bedford).

Thank you so much for taking part.
