Although this is not a particularly old book (1992) it makes a
great addition for any golf book collection exploring the colourful
history of caddies (men, boys and some girls) who earned their
meagre living on the golf courses of the past carrying clubs for
the great and mighty, the chronic incompetent, and all sorts of
players in between. Among them there were some extraordinary
characters, particularly those from north of the border, i.e.
Scotland. A very entertaining book full of photographs, cartoons
and anecdotes that will you find very amusing. There are 128 pages.
David Stirk’s previous book, The Compleat Golfer, was an
international best seller and he also wrote Golf in the Making.
The book is in good condition having a dark green hardback cover,
all pages intact and legible. There is a very slight ‘yellowing’ at
the edges of the pages. The dust cover is in good condition having
no tears. The spine section of the cover is white so this may be
the result of fading due to sunlight during storage on a book
shelf. The original price has been removed from the dust jacket by
a previous owner.
The book was first published in 1989 by H.F. & G. Witherby Ltd,
London. This copy is the second impression printed in April 1992.
The book measures 8.5” down x 6” across. 21cm x 15cm
