Background:

These colorful Golf caricatures are from a series illustrated by the British sports artist Charles Crombie.  Initially distributed in the early 1900s by Perrier, the French sparkling water company, they are from a hard-to-find folio printed in England in the mid-1960s.

The prints portray Edwardian golfers in various predicaments and the associated "rule of golf".  Additionally, a relevant Shakespearean verse in English and French is presented below the illustration.
