Product Details

A scarce title by one of golf’s best renowned authors whose other works include Golf Courses of Great Britain, Tee Shots and Others, Out of the Rough to name just a few. This is a 1st edition published in 1934 by Chapman & Hall Ltd, London.
The first 41 pages are dedicated to the golf ‘Heroes of Old’, i.e. F. G. Tait, Harry Vardon, J. H. Taylor, Harold Hilton, James Braid, Alexander Herd and John Ball. Other content include insights to three famous links courses, Sandwich, St. Andrews and Deal plus many other subjects are covered throughout the 246 pages.
The overall condition is good with all the pages remaining tightly bound and perfectly legible. There is some foxing (brown spots) on the first few pages at the front of the book and again at the rear of the book and few pages within the book are also affected. The first plain page inside the front cover has a hand written signature written in ink dated August 1950.
The light brown hard back cover is in good condition with a flagstick printed on the front board. There is a very faint stain mark on both the outside front edges of both boards but there is no sign of staining inside the boards or on the pages. The spine is sound with no fading. The title and authors name are clearly visible. Both the top and bottom of the spine have softened probably due to being handled on a book shelf. There is no dust jacket.
The book measures approx 7.5” down x 5” across. 19cm x 13cm
