Almost a century ago Bernard Darwin, the grandson of the propounder of evolutionary theory, wrote The Golf Courses of the British Isles, which has without exaggeration been called the finest book on golf ever written. Darwin's writing is sharp and opinionated, with the humor and resignation peculiar to those who have experience the heights and depths of the game, Harry Rountree painted the 64 illustrations that grace the book, setting a standard that has yet to be surpassed. For collectors, this is one of the rarest and most sought-after books in the whole literature of golf. For those interested in golf course architecture, this is a profound study of the school of strategic design. For travelers, it is far more than a guide: it evokes the atmosphere and inner qualities of each course as no other book ever has. Includes an Index. (Key Words: Sports, Golf Courses, Bernard Darwin, Harry Rountree, British Isles, Scotlandm Harry Vardon, St. Andrews, Horace Hutchinson, James Braid, John Ball).

This book has many wonderful examples of artwork by Harry Rountree.Its a shame that he is largely forgotten today but at the first half of the 1900's he was very popular.Alot of his work resembles that of Frank Frazetta, in that he uses solitary figures in his compositions for a more forceful painting.He is worth checking out.
