I have been collecting Wisdens for a while now and in 2005 set up this Website to pass on my Wisden experiences, this site was the first ever created on the internet to explain about Wisdens to the masses and it is regularly updated with valuable statistics to help every Wisden collector when needed, to enhance their set. This site includes a popular discussion forum (wisdenclub.com) which has kept me entertained since '05. Over time we were offered Wisdens from members and also people asked if we had any spares to fill gaps in their sets. This led to our online Wisden Catalogue and this evolved into our sister site wisdenauction.com (see 2013 Wisden, pages 50/51), we improved the look and feel of this site in August 2013, Happy Collecting, Chris Ridler, Wisden Collector.

One of the hard first fifteen to find, especially in Original form and with Original Covers.
String was used next to the spine to hold this edition together so they are usually more complete and tightly bound than other early years.

I am currently reading my set and pop notes into the www.wisdenauction.com newsletter, here is a snippet of the write up from 1876 : The back of the front cover has the previous editions precise , then the title page with a thank you by John Wisden on the reverse with 2 amendments in the errata , an adding up error and an age correction, contents follows then the calendar over 4 pages then births and deaths (5 Lillywhites) then the laws (identical to 1875s ‚¬€œ very dull but being an umpire it is a good read J opposition referred to as antagonists) we also have 42d law, I best check the same is in the rest! ), still no mention of a Boundary , a 4 or a 6 but it is referred to a lot in Wisden write ups, so maybe just a local law? First impressions is that there are a lot more words in here! 224 pages in total (plus covers). The calendar is always entertaining, T A Mantle concluded his walk from London to Land‚¬„¢s end in 1875 (Jan 5/6) the precursor to Beefy? Speaking of which a bull sold for 2000 guineas in 1875 (July 1), what would he make of the IPL auction? Plenty of new deaths in 75 and more cricket on ice (worth all these entries?), Wisden is getting lazy as a lot of entries go over 2 lines and 2 days. 10th April , Captain Boyton‚¬„¢s first try. Not sure at what. 28th April the prince of wales installed as the grand master of freemasons. Some cricketing notes too like Alfred Shaw‚¬„¢s great day at Lords (15th June) and Webbe 299 on 26th May. Hospital Sunday was on a Tuesday. 203 runs for the first wicket at Lords 6th July. 1st August ‚¬Å“very hot day 1875‚¬,a fatal storm , explosion and a few deaths later and the calendar has concluded. : Please contact us for the full write up.
My 1876 Wisden, as pictured, is a paperback without the rear cover, the rest of the book is fine, some flaking to the spine but no other complaints apart from the missing cover, purchased at auction for £1680 in circa 2011
