1949 Wisden Soft Back

£25.00

Thank you for looking at this Good 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 Very Good condition, they are bright and clean. The spine is firm, it is as with most ’49 editions, curved and it is blotchy.

Internally the pages are in very good condition.

The page block is dusty to the top, but generally very nice to the side.

Sir Donald Bradman – RC Robertson-Glasgow.
W.G. Grace Centenary.
