1949 Wisden Hardback

£32.00 £24.00

Thank you for looking at this Decent to Good 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.

This edition comes with a John Wisden approved dust jacket – the jacket has the ‘woodcutters’ image and content synopsis on the front. The jacket has been produced under license by Wisdenworld.

The boards beneath are in good+ condition, a little aged but strong and the gilt to the front and the spine is lovely.

The internal hinges are tight to the respective facing pages.

Internally the pages are in good to very good condition.

The page block is dusty and blotchy..
