John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1897 - 1897 Wisden Original Hardback, Fine Condition
1897 - For sale here is an 1897 original Publisher's hardback in fine condition. 1897 was the second year that Wisden published in hardback and in our experience the 1897 is just as scarce as the 1896 hardback. It is difficult to know why these two years are so scarce compared to later hardback years. It might be that Wisden produced them in very small numbers or possibly because quite a lot of them were taken out of the hardback covers and rebound in bindings to match the years prior to 1896. A lot of Wisden from this era were rebound by collectors at the time of publication. In any event the book is incredibly scarce! The front and rear boards and the spine are absolutely immaculate. The book as had no restoration whatsoever. The gilt is bright to the front board and to the spine. Internally, all is in immaculate condition - the front and rear paste downs, the contents and the plate are all complete, original, unmarked and in fine condition. An immaculate copy of a very scarce book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
