This book has been published numerous times and is widely available since the 1st edition in 1901. The 1902 2nd edition contained an additional chapter on hazards. It appears it was unchanged for the 3rd edition in 1909.

The 1st edition contained information in Chapter Eight regarding The Construction and Upkeep of Courses. The 2nd edition includes an additional chapter on hazards for architectural enthusiasts.
