Thank you for looking at this SPLENDID condition 1943 Wisden soft back edition. The eightieth almanack.

The front and rear covers on this edition are super. Very clean and with only minimal ageing.

The spine is also quite delightful; tight and clean.

Internally the pages are splendid – typical of the 1941-46 editions when the almanacks were thinner, the odd internal page has some webbing exposed, but this is very minor.

Contents Include:
Maurice Leyland in First-Class Cricket.
Planning Post-War Cricket.
MCC in 1942.
Matches at Lord’s in 1942.
Oldest living Test players and Miscellanea.
