1905 and 1906 Rebound Wisden Paperbacks

£130.00 £104.00

This is a Very Good+ condition set of two Wisden Paperbacks, 1905 and 1906, that have been rebound together. The 42nd and 43rd editions.

Two Wisden Paperbacks, the 1905 and the 1906 have been rebound together. The binding has the Foyles of London feel to it and it is likely, according to the previous owner, that the binding was done probably in the 1940’s or early 1950’s.
Both editions within the binding lack their original front and rear wrappers and the advertisements to the front and rear.

The boards, as can be seen on the photograph, are patterned. They are strong and solid, with minimum ageing. The front board is blank, the year and title are to the spine.

Internally the binding is tight – it was beautifully done and this edition certainly stands the test of time. There is ageing on some internal pages and both photo-plates are aged on the reverse, the plates themselves are in lovely condition. The trim is very tight on some pages.

The page block is very good.
