This is a Very Very Good 1884 original Paperback Wisden. The Twenty-First edition.

This excellent 1884 edition comes complete with originally front and back covers and a super professionally-made facsimile spine. The covers are, considering this is a 133-year-old edition in quite lovely condition. The text is all clear. There is minimal ageing to the front cover edge and to the bottom right of the front cover. At the bottom left of the back cover a tiny triangular corner is a little creased, there is a professional repair to this area. There is a small piece of the back cover lacking – at the very top – this can be seen on the photograph. The bottom left also has a very small piece lacking.

The contents are super. The pages within showing absolutely minimal ageing. On editions that are aged or worn this is often not the case. Unusually for rarer editions there is no foxing and the page block is splendid.

A truly lovely rare Wisden.
