The Gentry Links Trilogy by our Edinburgh friend Alastair Loudon is an exceptionally-researched and well-written series.
The bookshelves of golf historians house many volumes about golf course architecture, champions of the game, instruction, golf clubs, equipment, general history, agronomy, poetry, the rules, ephemera, and et cetera. Yet, there are sparse books of the game devoted to play by the gentry in the game’s earlier days.
The focus of The Gentry Links Trilogy is upon the gentlemen golfers in Scotland who were important patrons of the game of golf throughout the 19th century, set within the context of the social history of that period and using as a central focus an iconic painting in each book’s era.
The three volumes in Alastair Loudon’s fascinating trilogy (192 pages, 136 pages and 260 pages) are housed in an attractive and durable collector’s box. Each volume is printed on acid-free paper and the central iconic paintings are presented in an excellent fold-out manner.
The boxed series is priced at £150, plus handling, postage, and shipping.
Weight is 3.1 kilograms.
