1940 Wisden Soft Back

£220.00 £165.00

This is a Very Very Good condition 1940 Wisden Soft Back. The 77th edition.

The 1940 Wisden is always a tricky one to find. Containing the full details of the 1939 season – the last full season prior to World War Two – and some of the most poignant words in both the editor’s comments and across some of the county matches can be found in this edition.

The front cover on this edition is bright and clean, there is very minor bottom corner curling which can be seen on the photograph The rear cover is, for a WW2 edition, very very good. The spine is strong, a little dusty, but overall very strong. It has, typically for a 1940 a minor bow.

Internally this is a lovely edition. Some of the rear inside pages have minor page edge curling – no text is impacted upon at all.

The page block is very very good for a 1940
