“I am sure that the Almighty never intended that cricket should be played in anything but golden sunshine, especially if the wicket was doing a bit” (Ray Illingworth-Yorkshire and Back)

Pre 1938 Wisdens are invariably found in need of restoration. I take the view that restoring these editions to as close to their original condition as possible, is in the best interests of the book and the future owner. All restoration, repairs or enhancement are mentioned. I only use professionals to undertake this work.
