Thank you for looking at this Super 1943 Wisden soft back edition that has been beautifully rebound. The eightieth almanack.

The boards are quite stunning. Internally, the original front and rear wrappers had at some stage been affixed to the inside front and rear board. The wrappers are present but they are still mostly affixed, so this is being priced as an edition without wrappers.
Internally this is a lovely almanack. bright, clean pages and minimal ageing.   The page block is very good.

Contents Include:
Maurice Leyland in First-Class Cricket.
Planning Post-War Cricket.
MCC in 1942.
Matches at Lord’s in 1942.
Oldest living Test players and Miscellanea.
