1949 Wisden Hardback

£90.00

Thank you for looking at this Lovely condition 1949 Wisden Hardback edition. The 86th edition.

One of the most desirable of all Wisdens. In 1948 the Australians toured and the tour became the single most successful tour of all time, by any nation. The team became known as ‘The Invincibles”- of 34 matches played, they won 25 and drew 9. Seven Australian players scored 1,000+ runs on the tour, Bradman scored 2428 and Morris 1,922. Two bowlers, Johnston and Johnson took over 200 wickets each and four other bowlers 100+ wickets each. The tour was a resounding success and in the Test series England played a very very good England team.

The front and rear boards of this edition are in Lovely+  condition,  both are strong and firm. The gilt on the front is super, the spine has dulled a little, but it is readable.

The inside front and inside rear hinges are splendid, both are strong.

The page block is, overall, very very good.
