This is a rare original First Edition of the 1896 book The Game of Golf by Willie Park, Jr. The multi-talented legend not only hoisted two Open Championship Trophies, but also made his mark as a prominent club maker, golf writer and golf course architect during his time.  This example is in overall good condition with cover wear and bumps, tight binding. Listed with a value of $1,250 within Gilchrist’s Guide to Golf Collectibles, there is no doubt that this ground breaking book would serve as the cornerstone of many libraries.
