1956 Wisden Hardback

£55.00 £44.00

This original 1956 hardback is in Very Very Good condition. The 93rd edition.

It comes complete with a Wisden Approved Jacket – which is in exceptional condition.

On January 1st 2020 Wisdenworld was granted a license by John Wisden & Co to print and supply Wisden replacement Jackets. Jackets were not originally present on pre 1965 hardbacks, but in order to offer collectors the opportunity to have a uniform collection, dust jackets have been produced for the 1946 to 1964 editions.

The boards within are strong. The gilt to the front and spine is very very good, as with the vast majority of 1956 hardbacks the spine is creased. The spine of the board on most 1956 Wisdens is  creased – simply because of the materials used during publication and the decision by the publishers not to use ‘cow glue’ to affix the block to the spine board.
Internally the inside front and rear hinges are lovely as are the contents.

Overall a Very Very Good Wisden.

Contents include:
Growing Pains of Cricket.
Len Hutton; The Master by Neville Cardus.
