"Deutsche Rundschau" is a literary and political periodical established in 1874 by Julius Rodenberg. "Deutsche Rundschau" strongly influenced German politics, literature and culture. It was considered one of the most successful launches of periodicals in Germany. Among its authors were Theodor Fontane ("Effi Briest"), Paul Heyse, Theodor Storm ("The Dykemaster"), Gottfried Keller and Ernst Robert Curtius.

After Rodenberg's death, Bruno Hake took over as publisher, followed in 1919 by Rudolf Pechel. Until World War II, the "Deutsche Rundschau" was the mouthpiece of the Young Conservatives, and later of the conservative opponents of the Nazis.

In 1942, Rudolf Pechel was imprisoned and the periodical banned. Four years later, "Deutsche Rundschau" was again published by Rudolf Pechel. After Pechel's death, the monthly continued to be published by his sons Jürgen and Peter Pechel, and by Harry Pross. Burghard Freudenfeld and Hans-Joachin Netzer were the last editors.

Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf

This book is signed by the following professional golfers: Ed Dougherty, Bob Murphy, Andy Bean, Chi Chi Rodriguez, and Al Geiberger. The work is illustrated with many drawings by Paul Szep. "John Updike has been writing about golf since he took the game up at the age of twenty-five. In the nearly forty years of pleasurable bafflement that have followed, he has composed essays for 'Golf Digest' and short stories for 'The New Yorker' concerning the sport; he has contributed to tournament programs and walked such fictional characters as Rabbit Angstrom and Tom Marshfield (of 'A Month of Sundays') through the details of the round. Golf is neither work nor play, he asserts: 'Golf is a trip.' He lyrically confesses, 'In many weathers inner and outer amid many a green and winding landscape, I have asked myself what the peculiar bliss of this demanding game is, a bliss that at times threatens to relegate all the rest of life . . . to the shadows.' Speaking to the hundredth birthday party of the USGA (held believe it or not, at the Temple of Dendur in the Metropolitan Museum of Art), he said, 'I am curiously, disproportionately, undeservedly happy on the golf course, and perhaps we are all here for much the same reason.'

Golf has been the subject of many books and the province of many experts, but few have writing as sympathetically, as knowingly, about the perculiar charms of bad golf, and the satisfactions of an essentially losing struggle. The camaraderie of golf, the perils of its present boom, how to relate to caddies, and how to manage short putts among the many topics covered. These thirty pieces of pure gold have been dug up from a variety of sources. Some have been published in one or another of Mr. Updike's other collections; most have not. All have the lilt of a love song, and the crispness of a firm chip stiff to the pin." (dustjacket text).

The various signatures appear free front endpaper and the half title page. The volume shows light external age/wear, and is solidly bound with clean pages. Shelfworn dustjacket is in mylar cover. The book measures approximately 5 1/2" x 8" and contains 201 pages. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50
