1949 Wisden Soft Back

£15.00 £12.00

Thank you for looking at this Decent condition 1949 Wisden soft back 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 covers are in decent condition, they are aged to the edges. The spine is firm, it is curved and the curvature has dragged the front and rear covers and thus slightly revealing the block below. It has some scuffing to the top and foot. The front cover has slight bottom edge curling and the rear cover has the same to the top, with a few internal rear pages being scuffed at the top.

Internally again the pages have a ‘read’ feel to them, which should be the case anyway.

The page block is dusty.

This edition should be for someone who will be careful with it.
