A rare golf rule book dating to the 1820s is expected to auction for around £50,000 ($78,067) at Lyon & Turnbull in Edinburgh on July 15.

It's titled Rules of the Thistle Golf Club and was originally owned by George Logan, a member of the club.

The club was established at the Leith Links in 1815 and disbanded in the late 1800s.  

Very few copies of the book remain.
