Buncle & Co.Date Published: 1909 VERY VERY SCARCE Condition: Complete and all pages in excellent order, some slight damage to the paper spine but I decided to leave as is as its not detrimental to the books overall condition this makes the book quite fragile and some pages are starting to loosen so may need some attention in the future , very hard to find in any condition easily tidied up by someone should feel the need to repair this(price reflects this leaving some money for repair costs), a couple of these books have sold for very high prices due to the rarity of the volume and its importance to the History of the game. The inscription inside was to a club champion at Arbroath golf course and its provenence is rock solid and can be traced back to the date of publication.
