Here is a much-coveted 1932 Limited First Edition of Francis Ouimet’s book A Game of Golf.  To add even more value to this rare (Number 5 of 550 copies) book is the fact that it has been personally signed by Francis Ouimet. The book’s condition is good, with slight wear at the front hinge. There has also been some pencil drawing on one of the front flyleafs that someone tried to erase. Also some paper loss on the title page and first couple pages at top. You won't find an earlier numbered copy than this one #5 of 550. A low number like that means that it was most likely a personal gift from Ouimet himself to a close friend. Excellent Ouimet signature.
