Hopkinson began collecting golf books whilst working as a "scout" and dealer for collector Otto Probst. But his main interest lay in books on music, about which he was a very great expert. Indeed, after his death, in 1977, his obituarist had him as a "music bibliographer". A presentation edition of four copies is also known, bound in leather, plus a 1980 edition issued by Grant Books in an edition of 250.

First Edition. Paperback. Small 8vo. 56pp. Original red printed card covers, a little rubbed with splits to head and tail of spine. A very good copy of the rare first edition.
