Product Details

This edition was published in 1952 by Cassell & Company Ltd. London with the forward by Sir George Cunningham, GCIE, KCSI who was Captain of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews during 1950-51.
Contributors to this fascinating book are Bernard Darwin, H.Gardiner-Hill, Sir Guy Campbell, Henry Cotton, Leonard Crawley, Enid Wilson, Henry Longhurst and Lord Brabazon of Tara, all of whom are either famous for playing the game or for writing on it.
The book is filled with information about the Game, The Players, The Development of Equipment, The Rules, Courses, and the future of the game looking forward from the 1950's. There are a number of both coloured and black/white images to view mainly showing famous golfers and equipment used during the 19th century and the early 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.
