J.A. Hammerton – The Rubaiyat of a Golfer – 1946
This delightful little book is a parody on the Rubaiyyat of Omar Khayyam, but with verses and illustrations about golf instead.
Published in 1946, it features four-line verses on each page, with original illustrations and a stunning title page.
The English translation of the Rubaiyat was extremely popular in the early 20th century, inspiring many comic spin-offs.
In good condition, with original dust jacket. Some wear and missing areas to jacket. Previous owner’s name and date inside.
