While some excerpts are well known to the astute, well-read golf architecture student, most are from scarce or obscure titles. Well worth the investment as pertinent information from a large swathe of hard to find titles are contained therein. Limited to 400 copies, it is not easy to find. Even more so are the first 75 being the Woodstock Limited Edition.
