[This work was designed as a history of fine glass in England and Ireland from the 13th century until the second quarter of the 19th century. At several points the subject impinges on bottle glass and plate glass, but even economically these manufactures are distinct; moreover they are work, not art" - From the preface by Thorpe]

        Rare 1929 Vintage Signed British Ryder Cup Team Photograph ? the first Ryder Cup held in Europe ? won by the British

      Rare Printed Newspaper Photograph of the 1929 British Ryder Cup Team, 7.5? x 5.5?, affixed to the opposite of 4.25? x 6? heavyweight blank pages of an album, signed on verso of one page, one beneath the other, by all ten team members (only nine are pictured): ?Geo Duncan? (team captain), ?Aubrey Boomer,? ?Henry Cotton,? ?Abe. Mitchell,? ?E.R. Whitcombe,? ?Fred Robson,? ?Stewart Burns,? ?C.A. Whitcombe,? ?Percy Alliss,? and ?Archi Compston.? Shortly before his death, Sir Henry Cotton accepted a knighthood which was awarded posthumously to him in the 1988 New Year?s Day Honours by Queen Elizabeth II. Mild rippling. Boldly and clearly signed! Fine condition. The Ryder Cup is a biennial men's golf competition between teams from Europe and the USA. The first Ryder Cup, held in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1927, was won by the USA. The second Ryder Cup, held at Moortown Golf Club in Leeds, England, April 26-27, 1929, was won by Great Britain. In 1973, the official title of the British Team was changed from "Great Britain" to "Great Britain and Ireland" to reflect the fact that golfers from the Republic of Ireland had been playing in the Great Britain Ryder Cup team since 1953 while golfers from Northern Ireland had competed since 1947. Since, in addition to players from Great Britain and Ireland, the team has included players from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden, it is now generally known as Europe.The British Team who contested for the very first Ryder Cup on English soil in 1929: Team captain George Duncan (1883-1964), Stewart Burns, Abe Mitchell (1887-1947), C.A. Whitcombe (1895-1981), Fred Robson (1885-1952), Ernie Whitcombe (1890-1971), Percy Alliss (1896-1975), Henry Cotton (1907-1987), Archi Compston (1893-1962), and Aubrey Boomer. The USA team included Gene Sarazen and team captain Walter Hagen.

Copy #60/200 numbered copies of the American issue signed by Arthur Rackham. [There were an additional 575 numbered copies of the English issue, published by George G. Harrap, and also signed by Arthur Rackham]. There are 12 tipped-in color illustrations, plus additional black and white illustrations, plus pictorial endpapers [all by Arthur Rackham]. White vellum binding, with gold gilt lettering and rules, top edge gilt, with the other edges untrimmed. Generally a Near Fine copy, with tight uncracked hinges.
