1913 and 1914 Wisden Paperback Rebinds – Set of Two

£95.00

A Very  Good+ condition set of two Rebound Wisden Paperback editions. The 1913 JUBILEE Edition and the 1914. The 50th and the 51st almanacks.

The 50th edition of the almanack contains the full details of The Triangular Tournament – a series of Test Matches in England between the home nation, Australia and South Africa.

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 their bindings lack their original front and rear wrappers,  the advertisements to the front and rear are present.

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 these editions certainly stand the test of time. There is ageing on some internal pages and both photo-plates are in lovely condition. The trim is very tight on some pages.

The page block is very good.

 

A lovely set of two Wisdens.
