London : Longmans, Green & Co., (1949). First edition.

HOYLE, Edmond, 1672-1769 : HOYLE’S GAMES IMPROVED; BEING PRACTICAL TREATISES ON WHIST, QUADRILLE, PIQUET, CHESS, BACK-GAMMON, DRAUGHTS, CRICKET, TENNIS, QUINZE, HAZARD, LANSQUENET, BILLIARDS, AND GOFF OR GOLF ...
London : for J. F. & C. Rivington ; T. Payne & Son ; R. Baldwin and others, 1790. An important eighteenth-century edition of Hoyle, revised by Charles Jones – and including for the first time a section on "Goff, or Golf" – "Light Balls are used when playing with the wind, and heavy ones against it". Although compressed into the last few pages of the book, this would appear to be the first extended description of golf in any work of this kind. Also included are sections on cricket (the Star and Garter Rules of 1774), tennis ("a net hangs across the middle"), billiards, etc., as well as whist, chess, backgammon, etc.
