He also won the PGA Championship a record-tying five times (all in match play), and the Western Open five times when it had near-major championship status. Hagen totaled 45 PGA wins in his career, and was a six-time Ryder Cup captain.

London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1889. Signed limited first edition, one of a 100 large paper copies, signed by Frederic Halford. Quarto, bound in the publisher's full green morocco, gilt titles to the spine, raised bands, top edge gilt, with 26 mounted plates, five of them in color, and many illustrations on tissue in text. In near fine condition, bookplate. The purists among dry-fly fishermen will not under any circumstances cast except over rising fish, and prefer to remain idle the entire day rather than attempt to persuade the wary inhabitants of the stream to rise at an artificial fly, unless they have previously seen a natural one taken in the same position." It is the touchstone text of a dogmatic approach to chalk-stream fishing that was later challenged by Skues, but which is still fundamental to modern angling: "the true value of the book is reflected by its overwhelming fascination as the harbinger of an entirely new era in the history of fly fishing, the era in… Read more

Description:
New York: Ticknor & Fields, 1987. First edition of Hall's classic work. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author on the title page in the year of publication, "For Betsy seasonally! with pleasure Donald Hall 18 September 1987." Fine in a near fine slipcase. Illustrations by Thomas W. Nason. Hall gives us an intimate sketch of his beloved New Hampshire, where he summered with his grandparents at their homestead on Eagle Pond in Danbury: "By the time I was sixteen I daydreamed of living here as a writer; in my twenties I learned that this was impractical; in my forties I did it." All four essays lucidly entwine Hall's past and present lives. Unfortunately, they are self-consciously nostalgic and therefore somewhat oppressive; perhaps because this was the season of Hall's childhood, "Summer" is the best realized. Still, this provides yet another backdrop against which we may examine Hall's poetry, his fiction, and his plays.

Followed by his second book The Hidden Dimension, Hall created the concept of proxemics, or personal spaces. In 1976, he released his third book, Beyond Culture developed the idea of extension transference.
