103 pages, green cloth with gilt lettering and the club logo on the front cover. This small book, published in 1937 contains the Constitution, By-Laws and List of Members of the Brookline Country Club. A charming piece of history regarding the famous Brookline, MA club. Among the house rules: "Bell boys may not be sent on errands out side of the Club House" and "No one with spiked or hob-nailed shoes is permitted in any part of the Club House". The club was apparently very broad based since the book includes rules for Hockey, Lawn Tennis, Skating, Skiing, Squash, Curling, Trap Shooting and Golf. At that time the Club House also served as the home for several members and visitors are asked to obtain permission before visiting. Also, interesting from a historical standpoint is that during this time golf handicaps were set by the Golf Committee: "Members desiring a change in handicap should submit their three best scores for 18 holes". Annual dues at the time were $150 for a family. An entire chapter is devoted to Garage Rules and discusses how the manager has the discretion to move cars at any time including towing them by horses! Book is in fine condition and contains several black and white photographs within. Bookseller Inventory #
