This is a Lovely rebound Wisden paperback from 1892.The 29th edition.

The boards on this edition may well be as old as the book within. The boards are not hard, but firm. The paperback within is lacking its original front and rear wrappers.

Internally the pages are in lovely condition and finding editions from the 1890s is rare enough but finding one in such internal condition is rarer still. The original photo-plate is present, it is aged to the edges, but in good overall condition. The page edges are clean and the trim is very healthy
A rather lovely almanack.

Contents Include:
Laws of Cricket.
Umpires – Where to find them.
Five Great Bowlers.
The Development of Cricket.
Leading County: Surrey.
The English Team in America.

“A man with a music-hall imagination” (John Arlott on Brian Johnston)

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.
