Edinburgh, Scotland: David Douglas, 1887. 68p. red wrappers, black text. Cornerstone title. Rare title, providing firsthand accounts of the Old course and St. Andrews, thus important to historians of early golf.. Balfour would become a cabinet minister.
Book is renowed for its fragile construction, this copy having just one crease to the front wrapper (lower right as per photograph) and the normally non existent red paper spine still intact, two pieces of tape keep the book firm and protect from any further problems. Overall as good a copy as could be hoped for. Ex Schulenberg library. Item #8783
