The Bernard Darwin Collection (13 books)

$375.00

The dean of British golf writers, Bernard Darwin (1876-1961) is also regarded as one of the greatest sportswriters of all time. No less an authority than Herbert Warren Wind wrote:

[He] never tried to bowl his readers over with exhibitions of his brilliance or power, but his writing, modest and restrained as it is, has a quiet magic and a terrific staying power. Though never intended to be literature, it is.

An extensive 13-volume series of Darwin’s brilliant and incisive prose and commentary on the game he loved. Classics of Golf is proud to offer the finest collection of Bernard Darwin golf books ever assembled. Historic facts, biographic profiles and Darwin’s theoretical musings will be appreciated by the serious student or collector.
