'Golf is a funny game ...Many books have been written on the art of playing Golf, but few have attempted to give any record of the subtle humour which belongs to all sports of Scottish origin, and to Golf in particular.' So said the original blurb when first published in 1914.

Golf Stories is a collection of original short stories, jokes, anecdotes, sketches, dialogues and parodies, all illustrated with suitably baggy-trousered line drawings by E. W. Mitchell. It includes among many other items the maxims of Foozler Minimus, a golfing Roman legionary (Mens agitat molem: 'Some men get anyed with a molehill'), and 'The Rules - Revised', which states 'Casual water is any temporary accumulation of water - undiluted with whiskey'

Original decorative light gray-green cloth stamped in black. Front decoration bright. Spine light age-toning. Bindings tight and square. Text clean, even toning with occasional spotting. Moderate handling wear. Professionally recased with new endpages.
