Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1926 8vo, x, 115pp. Original green cloth stamped in black to top cover and backstrip, original pictorial dust jacket in green and white; frontispiece plus 16 photographic illustrations. Dust jacket chipped, missing 1 inch gap top left front cover, 2 inch gap at base of backstrip, light soiling. Bookplate affixed to front pastedown, with ink inscription above, “World Golf Hall of Fame”; former owner inscription in pencil to front endpapers, else near fine internally. Very good in good dust jacket. 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 Id: 104250)
