This most sought after book on how to play hickory golf details every aspect on how to play the game of golf. Abe Mitchell wrote this book after receiving appeals from golfers in all parts of the world. There are 191 pages full of advice, drawings and images aimed at developing your game.

The book was first published in 1927 with this copy being the fifteenth edition published in 1936 by Hodder and Stoughton, London.

The condition of the book is fair to good. The original dust jacket remains in place which is further protected by a thick plastic outer cover. The pages are tightly bound and the spine is in good condition.

There is foxing (brown spots) to most pages but the text is perfectly legible. The previous owners name is shown on the fly sheet but there are no written notes to the text pages.

The book measures 9” deep x 6.25” wide. (23cm x 16cm)

Abe Mitchell.

Henry Abraham Mitchell was born on 18th January 1887 in East Grinstead, Sussex and was a fine amateur golfer winning numerous tournaments and played for the victorious England team against Scotland in 1910. He also played in two Open Championships as an amateur before turning professional in 1913 when he was attached to the Sonning Golf Club, Berkshire.  During his professional career he won numerous tournaments both in the U.K. and whilst touring the United States. In 1920 he was leading the Open Championship at the halfway stage but a poor 3rd round saw him slip to 4th place. He was also a member of the Ryder Cup Team in 1929, 1931 and 1933.  He died suddenly in 1947 at the age of 60.

He was also a fine golf instructor, one of his pupils being Samuel Ryder from 1925 at the Verulam Golf Club, St. Albans, Hertfordshire. He was the professional and club maker at St. Leonards & E. Sussex in 1907, then Sonning-on-Thames in1914-19 and finally at N. Foreland, Broadstairs from 1920-25.
