part of the 20th century.
The overall condition of this book is good with all the pages in
tact and a strong spine. There is a signature on the first plain
page inside the front cover and there is some brown staining on a
few pages at the front and again on the first few pages from the
back cover. The edges of the pages also show brown mottled stains
but the main text is perfectly legible.
This is a classic golf book which has now become sort after by
golfers who wish to learn about the history of the game. You will
not be disappointed.
