When I collect Wisdens I am often asked to take boxes of general cricket books – as you may or may not know my knowledge is of Wisdens so I take these books by honestly telling people that I have no idea of their worth and I do not pay for them – so on here I list them at what is hopefully a price less than they are sold elsewhere (please correct me on any if I am wrong) and if you decide to buy any, EVERY penny will go to The Alzheimers’ Society. A charity very close to my heart.

The postage you pay will go towards the postage cost – but if a book sells for £10 and postage is £1, then £10 will go to the AS. If a book is available for £0, then the WCC will donate £1 to the AS.

***Please be patient when you buy, I will get them out as quickly as I can.
