One of one of the rarest books on the Masters Tournament. This Augusta National Golf Club album was issued circa 1952 according to the Bobby Jones forward in the album in “appreciation to those who have actively contributed to the success of the Masters Tournament. It also represents an effort to respond to inquires concerning our tournament organization, its policies and its method of operation”

15"x10". The books covers are original gilt lettered green calf.  It is bound internally with metal spirals.  This copy belonged to Joe Kirkwood with his name lettered in gilt on the front cover.

A unique behind the curtain look of the internal operations of Masters Tournament as it was in the early 1950s.  This book rarely comes up for auction and it should be in every serious Masters collection.
