Keine aktuelle Diskussion zu diesem Buch.
Golf has long enjoyed a body of literature far superior to man's other games, its challenge, lore, camaraderie, and singly beautiful playing fields providing the ideal palette for three centuries of colorful writing. From early Scottish poets to the twentieth-century eloquence of Darwin, Longhurst, and Wind, golf has offered its readers a uniquely rich library basking in a style and ambience entirely its own. In equal parts a literary overview, book buyer's reference guide, and sampling of the game's vibrant history and flavor, The Golfer's Library profiles 400 of golf's greatest-ever works, from its earliest known writings to the finest volumes of the new millennium. Each entry is examined critically, both for style and content as well as its greater place in golf's historical framework. Full bibliographic data are included, along with information on reprints, availability, and contemporary prices. Also featuring chapters on "A Brief History of Golf Literature" and "Some Advice On Building A Golfer's Library," plus an international listing of golf-oriented bookstores, The Golfer's Library is an obvious choice for avid golf readers, but an especially valuable work for anyone with a growing interest in the Royal and Ancient game.
