viii+86+[2 add] pages with diagrams. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5") issued in red cloth with black lettering to front cover with chess board vignette. (Betts: 20-1) First edition.

A collection of 87 diagrammed middle and end game positions, each with the winning or drawing continuation. Positions 1-26 cover "assaults on a castled kin"; 27-38 deal with attacking positions in w3hich one side has castled on the queen's side; 39-59 are miscellaneous middle and end game positions showing "gaining time to advance a pawn"; 60-76 are mostly end game positions, "pawn play generally"; the final group comprises end game drawing positions.


Front board creased, spine sunned, corners bumped, back board rippled, internally very good. Over all a good copy.
