Product Description

This is a Good condition Wisden Rebound paperback from 1893.  The 30th edition.

Firstly, let us look at the good points: At the top of the Preface page, it is signed by a future Wisden Editor, Charles Stewart Caine and dated Jan ’93.  The Boards on this edition are splendid – strong and firm, with title and year to the spine. The contents are lovely and the photo-plate is in very good condition.

The blemishes are as follows: The original wrappers and advertising pages to the front are lacking. One advertising page at the front remains, it is torn at the foot. The internal front page and contents pages are decent, worn to the bottom with staining. The page prior to the Preface page has a small tear to the foot. There is some very light staining to the bottom right of pages from Preface to post Births and Deaths, but the impact of this is very very minor.
The final advertising page has a small piece missing tot he foot and at the bottom of each rear advertising page there is minor staining, again it is minor.
The page block is dusty and the tissue guard protecting the photo-plate is very dusty.

All of the above taken into consideration this is a good condition 1893. It is secure in its binding and the trim is very healthy.

Overall, a good 7/10

Please accept my apologies if the website encounters any glitches…it should not, but just in case.

Every single book listed in the auction has been sent in by Wisden Collectors’ Club members. Thank you all for your patience during the pandemic.

Each and every book listed will begin at 0.99p. Each time you place a bid the latest price should be increased by £1. If something has a current price of, for example, £10.99 and you bid £20.99 then your bid should only go up to £1 above the top bid already placed. I hope that makes sense.

There is absolutely NO BUY-IT-NOW and NO RESERVE. Every lot will go to its finish.
With the total agreement of all sellers, 20% of each final price will be donated to The Alzheimer’s Society. If a book sells for £20 and postage is £5, then a total of £25 will be paid by the buyer. The seller will receive £20 and £5 will be donated. Each winning bidder will be given the name of my contact at The Alzheimer’s Society for verification purposes.

 I will try and post items bought within 3 working days of the auction ending and once payment has been received.

PLEASE DO NOT PAY for anything you win UNTIL you have received the invoice from me.

Finally...Please make sure that the item you are bidding on is the one you want. In the last two auctions buyers have said they made an error, sadly the buyers concerned have not responded to emails since, so and this is something I am so sorry to do, but if you win it then you will be asked to pay…the Wisdens listed are from collectors who want to see their almanacks bought and enjoyed by other collectors, so I am trying to stop anyone who doesn’t show them a little respect.

Thank you so much for looking and hopefully bidding!
