1965 Wisden Hardback

£80.00

This is a Very Very Good condition 1965 Hardback. The 102nd edition.

This 1965 comes complete with its original dust jacket which is in lovely condition.

The 1965 was the first Wisden to be published with a yellow dust jacket – collectors did not warm to the dust jacket and it is known that the editor received over 500 letters containing ‘cut up’ jackets. Traditionalists who wanted the almanack without a jacket were disappointed as the jackets have continued ever since. The editor received over a hundred letters once the 1966 was printed asking if there were any ‘spare’ 1965 jackets remaining, there were none.
Pressure from retailers encouraged the publishers to place a jacket around the almanack.

The dust jacket is bright and clean to the front and the rear – there are some light marks on both, which do not impact on the text or imagery. The spine of the jacket is in lovely condition, it is just a smidgen lighter than the colours. The dust jacket has been price clipped.
The jacket has been housed in a completely removable transparent cover.

The boards within are excellent as are the pages. The page block is super.
