1948 Wisden Hardback

£150.00 £120.00

Thank you for looking at this Very Good condition 1948 Wisden Hardback. The 85th edition.

The front and rear boards of this edition are in Very Good condition,  both are strong and firm. The gilt on the front and on the spine is good.  The spine is strong – typically it has some light creasing to the very top and the foot . This edition comes with a John Wisden & Co approved Wisdenworld produced dust jacket. The jacket has the ‘Woodcutters’ image upon the front along with a synopsis of the contents.

The inside front and inside rear facing pages in very good+ condition. They are tight to their respective opposites.

The pages within are in very good+ condition, bright and clean throughout.

The 1948 Wisden  was produced using two different types of paper. The first 70 pages and the final 180+ are superior quality paper, the central pages are of lesser quality. Again, post war shortages and the decision by Wisden to increase the pagination by 200+ pages in late 1947 meant that the only paper available was that of lesser quality – 90% of all Wisdens for 1948 were produced this way. The result – a two-tone look on the page block and the central block of pages all have brownish tops to the top and foot. There is  browning on this edition.

The page block is two-tone and it is dusty.

Contents Include:
Compton and Edrich – RC Robertson-Glasgow.
No Magic in Fast Bowling – CJ Kortwright.
Sir Stanley Jackson.
The Second Class Counties in 1947.

Notes By The Editor.
The Laws of Cricket.
