Cricketers' Almanack for 1891-, edited by S.H. Pardon. London: John Wisden, [n.d.]. 10 volumes, 8°, mounted photographic plate in each vol. (clean tear to p. xxix of 1891, 1895-1900 slightly browned at page edges and close cut, sometimes with complete loss of outer margin and occasionally with loss of numeral or beginning/end letters as on pp. 87 and 357 of 1895, pp. 203-05 and 217 of 1896 and pp. cvii and 241-43 of 1900, title borders and advertisements also occasionally affected, 1897 with creasing to corners), uniform contemporary brown half morocco with original wrappers bound in (spines of the later vols. faded, 1894 and 1899 more heavily rubbed than others). Provenance: E.T. Atkin (signature on front pastedown of each vol.).
A GOOD CLEAN SET, despite the element of cropping. Most volumes with more advertisements than called for. (10)
