The Game of Golf in East Africa.

Nairobi: W. Boyd and Company, 1953. 288 pp. Illustrated from photographs and advertisements. Red cloth, stamped and lettered in gilt. First Edition. A rare (and likely the only) title of golf history in Kenya and expatriate in the colonies, with detailed records and biographies. According to Murdoch, the author apparently buried most of the copies of the book in his garden when he fled Kenya during the Mau Mau uprising, hence its scarcity. Obituary slip pasted in, marking the passing of Mr. G.L.G. Shaw President of the Kenya Golf Union, murdered by terrorists in 1953. Item #7048

D&J H21310; Very good, no spine fade, free from inscription.
