A good copy of this very fine 1st Edition Copy of the best ever book on Collecting Golf Clubs. This is the lifes work of Jeff Ellis. From the very beginning of Golf right up to the 1930s Jeff has every Club style, every Patent Club included in this Volume. He has gone to extraordinary lengths to describe and Photograph every club possible. Undoubtedly this is the Golf Collectors Bible.
This is a Review I found
Published in 1997, the first edition of The Clubmaker's Art received widespread acclaim. Golf World listed it among the top 10 golf books of the 20th century. Travel and Leisure Golf called it the "heavyweight champion-literally" and included it on a list of the top 25 golf books ever written. It won the prestigious Murdoch Medal, awarded in Great Britain for outstanding achievement in golf literature.
Antique Sampson Mordan & Co Silver Vesta Case 1907. Chester Hallmarks
A beautiful Solid Silver Vesta Case made by the famous Sampson Mordan Company. The Lid has a Golfing Figure at the end of a full swing. Dressed in Golf attire of that date. The base of the Case is all serrated (never seen that before) Really strong Hinge great quality Silver. The Hallmarks are inside on the Base as well as on the Lid. Chester Hallmarks with S.M & Co and the date letter G for 1907. Please ask for more photos as I can only load one Photo per page. I would like £250.00 for this beautiful piece.
Sampson Mordan (1790 – 9 April 1843) was a British silversmith and a co-inventor of the first patented mechanical pencil. During his youth, he was an apprentice of the inventor and locksmith Joseph Bramah, who patented the first elastic ink reservoir for a fountain pen.
In 1822, Mordan and his co-inventor John Isaac Hawkins filed the first patent in Great Britain for a metal pencil with an internal mechanism for propelling the graphite "lead" shaft forward during use, as an improvement on the less complex leadholders that merely clutched the pencil lead to hold it into a single position.
Mordan bought out Hawkins and entered into a business partnership with Gabriel Riddle, an established stationer. From 1823 to 1837, they manufactured and sold silver mechanical pencils with the marking "SMGR". After the partnership with Riddle dissolved, Mordan continued to sell his silver pencils as "S. Mordan & Co.", adding many other types of silver and gold items to his product line. Mordan often made his pencils in whimsical "figural" shapes that resembled animals, Egyptian mummies, or other objects; like his other silverware and goldware, these pencils are now highly collectible.
Upon Mordan's death in 1843, his sons Sampson (junior) and Augustus inherited the firm. "S. Mordan & Co." continued to make silverware and brass postal scales until 1941, when their factory was destroyed by bombs during the London Blitz.

Fine Scare Joint, original whipping. Part original grip with cloth underlisting. Shaft is not stamped. Previous owners initials MH stamped to head. Shaft length 41 in. While this club has a heavy Brass sole plate extending up towards the shaft I think one of the reasons for this is Charlie Hunter was at Blackheath Golf Club for a couple of years ( 1866/1868)and the ground around there was very stony (gravel) brass sole plated were first used here to protect the clubs, I should think he brought the idea back to Prestwick.
