The Winning Shot (In Dustjacket)

by Jerome D. Travers and Grantland Rice

Condition: Near Fine/Very Good

Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1915. Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. A truly impressive copy of the 1915 1st edition. Tight and unusually crisp, with just a touch of light foxing to the endpapers. And in a bright, price-intact ($1.25), VG- to VG example of the 1st issue pictorial dustjacket. Light chipping at the spine crown and along the panel edges and tips, light foxing to the panels. Still though, handsome and very presentable --and notably uncommon in dustjacket. 12mo, 9 line-drawn illustrations complementing the text, co-written by the formidable Grantland Rice. Jerome Travers had just come off a win at the 1915 US Open at Baltusrol to add to his 4 US Amateur Golf Championships and, by any measure, was (and still is) considered one of the great golfers of the early part of the 20th century. His name is included among some of the immortals of the day such as Harry Vardon, Francis Ouimet, Chich Evans and Harold Hilton. (Donovan & Murdoch 37130).
