Circa 1893 'To The Society of Goffers at Blackheath' Mezzotint Print by V. Green


One of the most recognized golf prints was also the very first, 'The Blackheath Golfer.' Cross-referencing published sources differentiating between the unique versions and prints of the iconic 'The Blackheath Golfer' piece, this highly coveted example looks to be produced in only the second phase of publishing. That second printing is this 1893 platinotype print by V. Green and professionally framed with a tasteful, yet simple exhibition as to not take away attention from the piece itself. After this and the later circa 1901 photogravure from Edinburgh, the prints were primarily in color. All in all, this is the second most prized version to only the first golf print in existence to only the original 1790 mezzotint print by Lemuel Francis Abbott in which there are less than 15 known and the example offered in our January Auction of this year yielded the worthy sum of $19,617.

This originally commissioned image of Captain William Innis in his long red coat itself is familiar, as Lemuel Francis Abbott's 'The Blackheath Golfer' and remains one of the most published images in the history of golf. This piece of history, the forerunner of so many which have followed. The gentleman behind Innis is one of the retired local Greenwich, England sailors that were known to serve as caddies. 27 1/2" x 34 1/8"
