Aikman, G. - A Round of the Links: Golf Greens of Scotland

George Aikman, A.R.S.A Circa 1893

Round Of The Links, Views of the Golf Greens of Scotland, from water color drawings by John Smart (Edinburgh, Scotland R.S.A., 1893-1899). Smart's highly atmospheric views are of Dunbar, North Berwick, Gullane, Luffness, Musselburgh, Leith, Leven, Elie, St. Andrews, Carnoustie, Montrose, Aberdeen, Perth, Stirling, Bruntsfield, Lanark, Glasgow, Machrihanish, Prestwick and Troon. Twenty etchings in sepia, interleaved with tissues, privately printed, limited, signed edition (no limitation cited). Signed by John Smart. Edition no.28

Acquired from The Murdoch Golf Library, this rare book was personally owned by Joseph Murdoch. His Ex Libris (book plate) enclosed. A very hard to find book as many of the books were broken and etchings were removed and framed or hand colored.

This original book was presented to Joseph Murdoch by members of the Golf Collector's Society. It is referenced in the book "The Murdoch Golf Library" published in 1991 by Grant Books, Worcestershire, pg.230
