Book of Golf - Libro del Golf, 1

Simon Bening created this magnificent book of hours around 1530. For whom it was intended is unknown. The book has attracted lots of attention with its scenes of sports & free-time activities common during that time, including one with golf, from which the book takes its name.

Besides the marginal scenes the illuminations of the calendar are characteristic of 16th-c. life, both in work and free time.  Facsimile: original format, 14.5 x 22 cm, 60 pp, plus commentary. Published in 2004 by Moleiro Editor.  Euro 1,971
