Fine. A Fine hardback First Edition Thus Illustrated in a Fine Dust Jacket. 4to. 383 pp. Donovan-Jerris W18490. Herbert Warren Wind is regarded as the finest American golf writer of the twentieth century. A graduate of Yale University, Wind left America to pursue a Masters degree at Cambridge University. It was during his years in Britain that his passion for the game developed. He was stationed in China and Tokyo during World War II, but then he returned to America to accept a position with the New Yorker writing profiles. Wind would later come to prominence as a writer and editor for Sports Illustrated during its early years. However, it was his return to the New Yorker in 1962 that brought about the most important period in his career, and for two decades he produced some of the best essays written on the game. "The Story of American Golf", originally published in 1948 and later revised, is widely recognized as the definitive work on the history of gold in the United States. (D-J p. 811).

"...Wind's work is the most graceful and thorough history ever published of professional and amateur men's and women's golf in America. From John Reid, the man who introduced the game to this country with three holes carved out of a cow pasture on his New York estate in 1888, to Francis Ouimet's memorable victory in the 1913 U. S. Open, to Bobby Jones' "impregnable quadrilateral" in 1930, to the dawn of the era of Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, and Ben Hogan, Wind covers it all: the personalities, the competition, even swing analyses. This volume introduces the game's first star players, including Bobby Jones, Glenna Collett, Gene Sarazen, and Walter Hagen. "; series; 1.7 x 11 x 8.4 Inches; 383pp pages.
