British Golf Links: A Short Account of the Leading Golf Links of the United Kingdom -- With Numerous Illustrations and Portraits
by Horace Hutchinson, Ed
London: J.S. Virtue & Co, 1897. Cloth. Very Good +. A very solid copy of this wonderful late 19th century survey of British golf links, richly illustrated thruout with hundreds of crisp black-and-white photos. Tasteful former owner bookplate at the front pastedown and, above it, the official bookplate of "The Golf Museum and Library of the United States Golf Association", which had been given this copy by The Country Club, Brookline, MA. On the first blank endpaper, there appears the stamp of "The Country Club, Brookline, Mass" and, at the foot of the same page, the same former owner's neat, small signature. Beyond these signs of provenance, this is a surprisingly bright, well-preserved copy. Crisp gilt-titling at the front panel and spine and, save for a couple of tiny spots toward the front panel's top-edge, almost no wear to speak of to the panels. Internally, very clean as well, with no writing or markings of any kind apart from the aforementioned bookplates and stamps. Rear inner hinge tender but still perfectly sturdy. Tall quarto, 331 pgs. of text plus charming period ads at the rear. (Inventory #: 14922)
