1879 to 1886 Facs Reprints

Post by cridler »

Hi,

The contract is signed and soon the pre orders will go out but thought i would give our forum first dibs.

There are 2 things to buy in this run. We are reprinting 150 of the facsimiles that David created 30 years ago , all numbered 1 to 150 , there will be approx 50 box sets of the 8 just like the 4th edition first 15 reprint.

If you buy a box set , you can choose your number :-) the only caveat to that is if a leather collector wants it, that trumps any order but if not requested then it is yours. Numbers 3 & 4 are available for example. (No leathers have these)

The Facs are £125 easily now. That is a grand for 8! The new pre order prices will be

1879-1886 in a nice box set , 8 books post free £480 , individual copies £80 post free
(around £40 and £10 off RRP)

Ready in Summer 2021.

Email me if you want to reserve any.
Cheers
Chris

Having read all my Wisdens at least once, I'm now reading them again, but at random. I just finished 1999

Have you got a massive wheel with each year on it that you spin first?

Warwickshire bowled Hampshire out for 15 and ended up losing as they followed on with 500+ , have you read that one?
