This is a STUNNING condition 1938 Wisden Hardback edition. The 75th edition.

Wisden Hardbacks for 1938 are difficult to find in stunning condition – well this one is STUNNING!

The 1938 edition was the first of the new style – the front board from 1938 onwards contains the title and year only in a frame, the spine  ha the same information horizontally at the top. The first pages  on the 1938 edition were blank and the first page with text to both the front and the rear is The Calendar which appears at the front and the rear. Wisden discontinued with paste down yellow pages from this edition.
This edition also is the only edition not to have a contents page, the contents page was restored in the 1939 almanack.

The boards on this edition are in Excellent condition – they are strong, firm with no bumping. The gilt on the front is exceptional.

The spine is also in splendid condition – strong and firm with excellent gilt.

Internally the  hinges are super and the pages within exceptional. On the first right-hand (otherwise blank) page there is a small signature and the year.

The page block is in good+ condition – just a little dusty.

This is the only Wisden not to have an internal contents page.
