John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1883

[WISDEN]

[WISDEN] John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1883

John Wisden & Co., 1883.

Original publisher's peach paper wrappers printed in black. A very good copy indeed, with clean wrappers free from repair or meaningful damage. Superficial cracking to the paper on the spine and a little wear to the spine ends. An exceptionally well preserved copy.

The first Wisden to include adverts in the text, it also includes the details of the Australian tour of 1882 and their victory in the Test Match (a term not at that point invented) at the Oval which led to the spoof obituary of English cricket in the Sporting Times, which led, henceforth to matches between England and Australia to be known as playing for 'The Ashes'.
Wisdens from this period are seldom found in original wrappers without significant repair or damage.
