Description: A complete set of Wisden. 1864 to 1897 are the facsimiles as is 1919. From 1898 through to 2012 are originals (except 1919 as mentioned). From 1898 to 1953 the books are the paperbacks and then uniformly bound in brown buckram and with the original wrappers bound in, except for 1933 which is an original hardback, with 1907 and 1931 issues lacking the front wrapper but having the rear wrapper and 1923 having facsimile wrappers.. From 1954 to 1964 they are the original hardbacks with NO dustwrappers and some of the titling on the spines is faded. From 1965 to 2012 they are all hardbacks and in dustwrappers. The books are in very good condition. Some of the early original issues have been attacked on the covers by a little sticky but this is minor. The buckram rebinds are sturdy and functional without being eye catching. Its a great opportunity here to obtain the holy grail of cricket collecting. You can still have the excitement of collecting over the next 50 years as you try to replace the early facsimiles. The first 20 facsimiles are issued as a set in an edition of 1000 copies
