Bobby Jones' 1926 'Golf Clubs as Bird Sanctuaries' Book - Scarcest Written Work


When inventorying the written works of the great Bobby Jones in totality, none are a more challenging acquisition than this publication in which he collaborated with his dear friend and original Augusta National Golf Club member Grantland Rice. Published in 1926 Jones was just entering his prime, with only one of his 13 majors won prior. The amateur golfer joined an esteemed writing committee to educate both the public and the private courses on the ways to best protect their winged wildlife, specifically birds that lived on and around the golf course. A tight spine and clean grey wrappers; the National Association of Audubon Societies For the Protection of Wold Birds and Animals contains 64 pages. Many of these pages include black and white pictures of golf courses and nature's creatures for educational purposes. Illustrated on the reverse wrapper is a humorous cartoon of Bobby Jones in which his ball strikes an egg. The bird standing next to him's dialogue bubble is "Hey! That was my egg!x?!!" It is in very good condition, with very light surface wear and ink markings penned by the original owner only noted for accuracy.

Jones, Robert T., Jr. (Bobby Jones), T. Gilbert Pearson (Compliments of Gilbert Pearson on front cover), Grantland Rice, Bruce Barton, Frank Chapman, Eugene Wilson, and Arthur Allen. 1st Edition. 7 3/4" x 9 3/4". Illustrated with black and white photographs and drawings. Written for the Audubon Society
