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 twice-autographed limited edition of Bobby Jones' autobiography Down the Fairway. Only 300 of these limited first edition books were published in 1927, this copy being unnumbered. Inside this book are some of the finest autographs you will ever see of Bobby Jones and O.B. Keeler. Bobby Jones autographed the book a 2nd time under his image. Bobby Jones' autograph changed a great deal over the years, but 1927 full-name autographs from Bobby Jones' prime is as good as it gets.

Very good condition, includes an impressive custom clamshell case.
