Introductions by Bernard Darwin

Washington, Texas: Dormy House Press, 2012. 293p. cloth. slipcase 1st ed. ltd to 575 copies only signed and numbered by the publisher Dick Verinder. This book gives a incredible insight to the diversity of Bernard Darwin's interest and depth of knowledge in a vast range of subjects, and thankfully golf is his number one source of interest, bringing golf into the world of English literature. Mr. Daniel Wexler, himself an author and editor of many books on golf, has graciously supplied the Foreword. The 293-page book has faux leather hard boards with silver gilt lettering and 'B.R.M.D.' indented on the front cover. End-sheets display previously unpublished photographs of Bernard Darwin (about 15 years old) in golfing attire on the grounds of his father's house, Wychfield. Most of Bernard Darwin's introductions in this anthology are to books on golf: club histories, playing the game, course design, course maintenance, rules of the game, golfing humour, great players, etc. However, non-golf related subjects, dear to his heart, present his diversified writing talents. Such topics include, but are not limited to; Charles Dickens, Robert Louis Stevenson, Travelogues, the English Language, Railroads, Medicine, Food, Sherlock Holmes, and 'The Times' Fourth Leaders. Limited quantity available. Item #7009
