1948 Wisden Soft Back

£55.00 £41.25

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

The covers on this edition are lovely –  There is some dustiness to the front and a slight mark to the top left,  but no text or imagery is impacted upon. The spine is also in very good+ condition – firm and clean, with just a small scuff to the foot.

Internally the inside front cover pages a libris clear sticker upon it and there is also one on page vi, these are advertising pages so no important stuff is impacted upon. Oddly, there is a isbn sticker to the foot of the first right hand page. There are photographs of all three showing how little impact they have.

Internal hinges are very very important on Wisdens – this is because weak hinges will result in breakage with normal reading. The hinges on this edition are very good

The pages within are in very very good condition.

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.

On this edition there is a light stain to the foot of the block, this does not impact on the pages within.

Contents Include:
Compton and Edrich – RC Robertson-Glasgow.
No Magic in Fast Bowling – CJ Kortwright.
Sir Stanley Jackson.
Australia and England – VGJ Jenkins.
South Africa in England.
County Champions: Middlesex.
