Thank you for looking at this Very Very Good 1949 Wisden Hardback. The 86th edition.

For any Wisden collector the 1949 edition is one to have. In 1948 the Australians toured and after 34 first-class matches they were undefeated, winning 25 and drawing 5. The side became known as ‘The Invincibles’ and in every department they outplayed all before them. Donald Bradman also played his last Test for Australia, in the fifth Test at The Oval. He needed to score four runs in order to finish his Test match career with an average of 100; just in case you dont know, I wont tell you what happened.
England were not a bad side – they simply met a formidable opponent.

The outside boards and gilt on this edition are in very good condition. The gilt is strong to the front and although a little dull, readable on the spine.

Internally this edition is in lovely condition. Crisp and delightful contents. The inside front hinge is a little cracked

The page edges are, unusually for a 1949, in lovely condition – a little dusty, but overall, lovely.

Overall a rather good 1949.
