1896 Wisden Rebound Paperback – UNIQUE

£350.00 £262.50

This is a SUPER condition 1896 Wisden Rebound Paperback. The 33rd edition.

The 1896 Wisden is referred to as The Grace Edition as it contains an article and the career to date details along with recollections of the great man.

This is a very very unique rebound edition. The boards are strong, with title and year to both the front and the spine, but it is inside where this edition becomes very unique. It is obvious that at some stage this was an original hardback as the inside front and inside rear paste-down pages that are normally present on the hardback are present here. They are in super condition.

It is odd that a previous owner has remove the original hardback boards but this may have been a result of damage to them, but it has left the hardback contents within strong bindings.

The original front and rear wrappers are in super condition and the hinges are excellent.

Internally the rest of the pages are in super condition and the photo-plate of WG Grace and facing tissue guard are also in lovely condition.

The page block is also in very very good condition.
