According to Leslie Gutteridge (Wisden 1963) only 900 copies were published in hardback in 1942. This is a particularly fine example.

Hammond in first-class cricket Review of the County Championship Hobbs hundreds in all matches (including 116 for Fathers v Kimbolton School in 1941) Various photographs including RAF & Army teams v Lords XI First-class cricket in Australia Obituaries, including Robert Peel, Yorkshire (1857-1941) Condition Bound in brown cloth generally clean, very slight indentation to the top-edge of the upper cover, else in very good order, gilt a little patchy to the upper cover and dulled on the spine, page-ends generally clean. Internally hinges excellent - uncracked, springy & tight, contents in generally fine condition throughout with few marks and no foxing detected, and no inscriptions except a faintly visible pencilled price to the ffep. Overall a fine example of a rare year. Shipping This book will be sent free in the UK via Royal Mail Special Delivery (Next Day Signed-For, 1pm), or via a 24-hour courier, fully insured.
