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.

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.
