This is a scarce autographed copy of the last book from the great Bobby Jones before his death. This 1969 1st edition of Bobby Jones On the Basic Golf Swing contains an original, shaky, late-in-life signature of Jones. Though admittedly not as aesthetically pleasing as Bobby Jones' earlier signatures, this autograph is actually far more significant than almost all others. As you can see, signing was no longer easy for Bobby Jones as his health failed. Jones was also years removed from the public eye, making signatures near impossible to obtain. Because of those facts, very few autographed copies of this book exist. Quite impressively, our consignor had a custom clamshell case produced for this rare book.
