Descripción W. Boyd & Co., Nairobi, 1953. Cloth. Estado de conservación: Fair. No Jacket. 1st. Edition. 283pp, maroon cloth boards with gilt titles. Numerous b&w photos, dating from the early 1930's, of historical East African golfing figures Numerous interesting period adverts. Legend has it that the author buried most copies of this scarce book in his garden to hide them from terrorists, when he fled Kenya during the Mau Mau uprising. It may just be that this is one of those copies, which has been dug up, because, sadly, it has suffered considerable damp damage in the past, resulting in the following defects: rippling of the front cloth board and inside pages; some staining of the maroon boards onto the edges of pages; old brown water stain to the outside margins of some pages. This said, it remains a very readable copy, not ex-library, and so tight and unworn. I wish it were nicer! The price reflects the condition - Fair only. CB23. Nº de ref. de la librería 14768

Descripción W Boyd and Company (Printers) Ltd., Nairobi, 1953. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. 288 pages (complete). A benign copy. Of interest is an insertion affixed to the frontispage : "The Editor deeply regrets the death of Mr G L G Shaw, President of the Kenya Golf Union, murdered by terrorists, November 18th, 1953." The boards are firm. They have sunning and wear. They are placid. Within, the pages are gently aging. There are flushes of foxing throughout. Nonetheless, the contents are assiduous, amiable, affectionate, clear, comfortable, certain. fk. Nº de ref. de la librería bzza

Descripción Nairobi: W. Boyd, 1953. A compilation of East African golfing records, particularly dealing with Kenya. Histories of Kenya's golf clubs, with lists of past captains and presidents, fill much of the book. There are also articles comparing golf in Kenya with the sport in Britain and on the visit of the professionals Hagen and Kirkwood in 1937. This scarce work was written at the height of the Mau Mau uprising against the colonial powers responsible for introducing the sport, and the President of the Kenya Golf Union was murdered shortly after publication. The advertisments which feature throughout the book are also of interest. 8vo. 288pp. Numerous b/w photographs. Original maroon cloth, gilt lettering to f/c and spine. Obit note announcing the death of G.L.G. Shaw, President of The Kenya Golf Union, pasted to front end-paper, light spotting to titlepage. A good copy and uncommon. [D&M, 21370].
