Scarce and fine 1899 "The Rules of Golf, as adopted by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews 1899" hand pocket edition in the original near fine red and gilt cloth boards - almost certainly for the use of R&A members. Published by R & R Clark, Edinburgh. Copyright by Charles Stuart Grace (Hon. Sec. of the Club) Unobtrusive handwritten greetings at front of book, otherwise (VG). Note: See previous lot this was the first standard code, to be adopted by all clubs, issued after the formation of the Rules of Golf Committee in 1897, again making this a milestone publication.
