About this Item

16 pages, illustrated. The town of Bethlehem was one of the many prosperous resort areas in the White Mountains at the turn of the century. Driving through the town today it is difficult to imagine that it once had 24 hotels (as listed) combined capacity of 1781 rooms, and I doubt that number included servants' quarters. The Casino must have hopped at night! The 9-hole golf course was first layed out by W. Lillywhite, "one of the finest nine-hole courses in the mountains, abounding in hazards and those difficulties that ensnare the careless player, and is in charge of a very experienced grenkeeper". This course was later revised and expanded to 18-holes by Donald Ross in 1910. Mostly photographic, the booklet includes images of golf, baseball, etc. The tan wrapper is illustrated with a drawing of a golfer in black and yellow, lettered in yellow. Staples oxidized but discolor only the small areas of the center spread immediately surrounding them, else Fine condition. Very scarce turn of the century golf ephemera. $65.00 Size: 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000672
