decoration27 Feb. 2014

Over 550 lots of golf books, art, and memorabilia from the Libraries of Louis Weinstein, Richard Donovan and others. Included are some of the earliest mentions of golf, such as: Sermons to Gentlemen Upon Temperance and Exercise, by Dr. Benjamin Rush, 1772 or the 1566 Acts of Scotland, banning golf. In addition to those rarities, are some unusual and scarce items such as a Tarzan novel, inscribed from Edgar Rice Burroughs to his son, with a drawing of an ape-man golfing. There are numerous must-have golf books in exceptional condition, many books rare in dust jackets, plus a spectacular selection of artwork from the late 19th century to the modern day.

PBA Galleries is one of the largest and most successful specialty auction houses world-over. Devoted to books, works on paper and related arts, PBA conducts approximately twenty-five gallery auctions a year and continuous live auctions of rare books, manuscripts, autographs, maps, atlases, prints and photographs.
