1959 Wisden Hardback with Dust Jacket

£50.00 £40.00

Thank you for looking at this Very Good 1959 original Hardback edition. The 96th edition of Wisden. This comes with a stunning Dust Jacket.

From the first Wisden in 1864 right through until 1964 each almanack did not have a dust jacket. On January 1st 2020 Wisdenworld acquired a license to offer dust jackets for Wisdens from 1946 onwards. Two sets are available – 1946 to 1964 and 1965 to 1978.

From the first set we are offering this original 1959 Hardback Wisden with a dust jacket. The dust jacket shows the ‘Woodcutters’ along with a selection of contents. The jackets are aimed at providing a uniform cover for collectors, as well as protecting the book within.

Beneath the jacket, the front board is super, the spine board is super. The front cover and spine gilt are both bright and clear.

The inside hinges are super

Internally, lovely. The page block is very very good. The book has a slightly curved front board.

Contents include:
From W.G. Grace to Peter May.
India, Be Bold.
The early County Champions.
The Story of Somerset.
Five Cricketers of The Year.
The Wardle Case.
New Zealand in England.
County Champions: Surrey.
