Title: Golfiana; or, Niceties Connected with the Game of Golf. Dedicated, with Respect, to the Members of All Golfing Clubs, and to Those of St. Andrews & North Berwick in Particular
Author: Carnegie, George Fullerton
Description: 26 pp. 6¼x4, original (?) plain green wrappers, cloth spine.

The second edition was published later that same year, this time for public sale, with the addition of two poems. The three poems by Carnegie are: The Golfiad; The First Hole at St. Andrews; and Address to St. Andrews. In 1842, this third edition was published, in wrappers, with another long poem added. The poems were later republished in Clark's Poems on Golf (1867) and Golf (1875), and in Stewart's Golfiana Miscellanea (1887). Harry B. Wood wrote in his Golf Curios and the "Like": "My golfing library would not be complete without a copy of the immortal and now scarce Golfiana... [by Carnegie]."
