Rare Original 1927 Bobby Jones Advertising Postcard & Prospectus For Down The Fairway


This may be in retrospect the most significant golf advertising postcard ever issued. The book Down the Fairway became one of the most popular golf books of the 20th century and by 1931 had already gone to 6 printings and is still being reproduced today. Herbert Warren Wind deemed it to be the best book about golf ever written. The left side of the postcard is adorned with a beautiful picture of Bobby at the finish of his swing. The postcard indicates the book will be ready July 29 (1927) and further states the “regular edition price will be $3.50. it also offered a special deluxe edition of three hundred numbered and signed copies, -handsomely printed and bound, with autographed photogravure frontispiece, which could be bought for $25. (Note: this book with its slipcase has sold at auction for over $10000 and is currently listed on a popular used book seller site for $15000). Would make an excellent display piece with an original 1st edition copy of Down the Fairway also offered in this auction.
