§ First edition. As her biography at the World Golf Hall of Fame states, Glenna Collett Vare (1903-1989) was known as the female Bobby Jones, as much for her composure & sportsmanship as for her astonishing achievements. She won six U.S., two Canadian, & one French Women's Amateur Championships -- in her day there was no professional women's tour -- and she was certainly the dominant American female golfer of the first half of the 20th century. Bookplate of golf author Harry Gottlieb affixed to front pastedown. D&J C16090. Item #104250
