Golfiana Miscellanea; Being a Collection of Interesting Monographs on the Royal and Ancient Game of Golf

Stewart, James Lindsay, editor


Hamilton, Adams & Co.



xi, [1], [9]-300 + 8 ad pp. (8vo) original red cloth, gilt-lettered spine. First Edition.

Stewart's purpose in publishing this book was to bring golf literature to the attention of the public, since although Clark's magnificent book had appeared years before, it had been in a limited edition and generally unavailable to the public. Among other literature, this contains an interesting reprint of Farnie's The Golfer's Manual - Murdoch 743; D&M 4380; D&J S36640.

Lot Amendments

Slight lean to somewhat darkened spine, soiling to boards; hinges starting, toning to endpapers, milder toning within; very good.
