About this Item

256 pages. True first edition, first issue printing with all the appropriate points. Title page date is MCMXXII and the publisher's monograph and "A" appear on the copyright page, lists eight titles on the half-title page. Some minor soiling to the front board, foxing on the fore-edge and the first 20 pages, corners a bit worn. The Clicking of Cuthbert is a collection of 10 golf stories narrated by The Oldest Member. The title story features the golfing character of Cuthbert Banks playing at the Wood Hills links. Wodehouse¿s prose has a well-deserved reputation for excellence, especially his wit. Wodehouse was a golfer himself, with a handicap reportedly never below the mid-teens. He played golf around the world and was a member of The Addington in England, Great Neck on Long Island in New York and Le Touquet in France. Donovan & Jerris W20950. The Clicking of Cuthbert was issued in the U.S. in a first edition by A.L. Burt as Golf Without Tears. This is the first U.K. edition. Some of the finest writing about the sport, 'Golf is the infallible test. The man who can go into a patch of rough alone, with the knowledge that only God is watching him, and play his ball where it lies, is the man who will serve you faithfully and well.'
