Desert Island Wisden

Desert Island Wisden
Which single edition of Wisden would you salvage from your shipwreck?

If a Wisden collector was about to be marooned on a desert island and could take a single edition of the yellow tome as their book of choice, which would it be?
If you were alone and without any communication with the outside world – and only a single almanack (plus the bible and Shakespeare’s complete works, of course) to fill the time between foraging and hunting – which edition would you choose?

*Would it be the most valuable one in your collection, to stop those pesky relatives from selling it during your absence

*Maybe it would be your most treasured edition, a special gift from long ago, maybe!

*It could well be the one that recreates a particular season, evoking many poignant memories.

In Desert Island Wisden, collectors from around the world have penned their choices. From poignant editions handed down to ones that bring back memories galore – a lovely collection from those who are rarely asked for their opinion – cricket followers who maybe relish the game and not the hype.

With illustrations by Bob Bond and a foreword by the Editor of Wisden, Lawrence Booth we hope you enjoy this rich collection of essays, thoughts and articles on the wonderful almanack.
