This book has been called one of golf book collecting's most prized possessions. As far as 20th century golf books go, there is arguably no finer book than the offered example. 

Offered here is the famous autographed limited edition of Bobby Jones' autobiography Down the Fairway. Only 300 of these limited first edition books were published in 1927, this being book #295. Inside this book are two of the finest autographs you will ever see of Bobby Jones and O.B. Keeler. Bobby Jones' autograph is exceptional. Jones' autograph changed a great deal over the years, but a 1927 full-name autograph from Bobby Jones' prime is as good as it gets.

This exceptionally rare book is in high grade condition. It's about as fine of condition as you could ever expect a 95+ year old book to be. An investment grade piece.
