This 1943 Wisden HardBack is in SPLENDID condition. The 80th edition.

The gilt to the front cover is exceptional. The spine gilt has dulled. The boards are in super condition – as can be seen on the photographs, the front has a very very light crease to the top and centre of the front board.

Internally the inside front and inside back hinges are lovely, with no hinge exposure or creasing.  The pages within are also in lovely condition.

This is a rather splendid edition.
