By the end of the nineteenth century, the time of the great Triumvirate of Braid, Taylor and Vardon, little was written on the game of golf compared with the early twentieth century. The selections made for this book have been garnered from rare books and pamphlets, some of which are virtually unknown, together with articles and extracts from magazines. This extensive selection paints a vivid
picture of golf in late Victorian times. Many areas of golf and the game are covered in the seven chapters: History of the Game, St Andrews, Art and Humour, Chronicles and letters, Songs and Poems, Agronomy and Rules.
