1963 Wisden Soft Back

£45.00 £33.75

This is a Very Good Condition 1963 Soft Back Wisden. The 100th Edition.

The covers are bright, strong and firm. Some minor light ageing to the edges but overall they are lovely. The spine is, unusually for a 1963, straight – the sheer weight of pages has resulted in ’63 soft backs developing spine curvage, this one has no curvage. The spine is darker than the covers.

Internally the inside hinges to the front and rear are in splendid condition, as are the pages within.

The page block is very nice, a little dusty.

The 1963 had three print runs, in April, May and June 1963,  this is from the First Run in April and it is very unusual finding first run 1963 soft backs in this condition.
