Golf Course Design by Cornish/Hurdzan

Today I received my paperback copy of Geoffrey Cornish and Michael Hurdzan's new bibliography of golf architecture writings, Golf Course Design. Grant Books ( published it and has created three editions: paper, a limited 425 edition and a 75 leather bound signed edition.

You can poke around the Grant Books website to find the various editions. But just on an initial glance, the book is outstanding (though I'm biased, several of my books are featured and praised).  From the web site:

The book is divided into three sections: Part I: The Architecture of Golf, a chronology which discussses the evoloution of golf course design, architecture and construction. Part II: The Literature of Golf Design, which deals with the literature of golf design, land marks in the literature of golf design, biographies of golf architects, architects who are authors. Part III: The Bibliography which is devided into various sections. Part IV: Arrangements of Large Collections. Part V: Resources. The appendix includes short title index and the index of authors. This is a landmark production in the field of golf course design. The extensive bibliography is graded in both importance and value.
