    Wimbledon Programme 1920

    Priced at 1/- this early programme comes in a fold out format like an ordnance survey map and very often induces tear etc. However, this one is in exceptional condition for its type. Made to fold down – see first image the front face is dated Wednesday, June 30th and states play – upon the lawns of the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, Wimbledon. Officials are listed including the committee, referees, and president. The Patron – His Majesty the King. The reverse side states intended order of play including doubles on centre court, players include – Lambert Chambers, Ryan, Tilden, Kingscote, Parke, Patterson and Lenglen. The Gentlemen’s Singles draw shows all matches and scores up to and including the semi-finals. Tilden will play Shimidzu in the final. Similarly, the mixed doubles, where Mr and Mrs Beamish will play Lycett and Ryan and ladies singles where Ryan will plat Lambert Chambers. The other events are at the quarter/semi-final stage. Advertisements are restricted to the Davis Cup, Thos Tate rackets, Elkington trophies, Carter’s seeds and En-Tout-Cas hard courts. Condition is excellent. The pages a clean and bright except for the back page that has some light browning. There are very minor fold tears. The images clearly show this. Of this this type it is the best example I have seen.

    Note in the ephemera section there is a related item. A portion of another 1920 programme (top right corner of Event 1 showing Holder: G.L. Patterson etc) contains American player’s autographs obtained on July 1st. The autographs – Samuel Hardy, Molla Mallory, Bill Johnston and Bill Tilden.
