J. Wisden & Co

Wisden's Almanack, the 'Bible of Cricket' was first published by John Wisden. It appears annually and contains a vast amount of information about English and overseas cricket, including scores of matches and various records that have been set. On Wisden's death in 1884 his manager, Henry Luff, continued the business and increased its success. They moved out of the Cranbourn Street address in 1928. It is now (2015) part of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc.
