Lot Information

Publishes with soft covers so the prospective owner would rebind in a more substantial cover. The rare limited large paper edition with wider margins. This is one of the most elaborate books of the period, lavishly illustrated with remarkable photographs, etc. It also serves as an interesting commentary on the styles of clubhouses built at that time in England and Scotland. It was published in wrappers with the expectation that purchasers would bind to their own tastes. As a result, copies in the original state are very uncommon. A superb example of the best issue of one of the key books in its field. 331 printed pages. Illustrated from numerous photographs and engravings throughout. (folio) 15x11, original cream coloured japon wrappers, titled in gilt, with the original transit boards, title in gilt on front board. Number 68 of 250 copies. Condition: Very light wear to extremities, a few very small and faint stains near edges of front wrapper, some browning; a short marginal tear on page 1 repaired with tape; text tight and bright, very good to near fine. Comes with the original boards (of original transit box) made into a folio case (photo 6) , with moderate to heavy rubbing. Overall a wonderful copy of a very rare and sought after title.
