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.

If you have any comments to add regarding the 1865 Wisden, please contact us on email@example.com and we will add them
My 1865 is a very nice paperback that was once rebound and has been removed from those bindings and a facsimile spine has been added, it is an inch shorter than my 1864 but no loss to text,the full cost was £6000 (in approx 2012)
I am currently reading my set and pop notes into the www.wisdenauction.com newsletter, here is a snippet of the write up from 1865 : I am keeping a tally of blank pages (after my initial paranoia of the 1938 Hardback) and there is a blank page in the 1865 after the title page (3 noted so far). The 1865 comments to the reader that it is a quick reference copy compared to other larger volumes that were out at the time (not so now, I guess they were referring to the Lillywhite) Unlike the 1864 , there are no calendar facts at the bottom of each month like 1864, but it does now have the zodiac sign. Listed on Feb 20th ‚¬€œ "William Beldham died after raising 39 children, 28 to his first wife, 11 to his second" ‚¬€œ he made sure of 11 second time round for a 1st Wife vs 2nd Wife XI match. (the 1st wifes seconds were the best around). : Please contact us for the full write up.
