The one-mover chess construction task stands apart from the Chess Problem proper in a singular way. It has the quality of being a continuous constructive effort by composers of many generations, over a period of nearly one and half centuries, to build an edifice of sound economical record positions in various categories of Tasks. Only Maximum Tasks are dealt with in this booklet, but Minimums and other do exist. Many of the famous Problemists such as W A Shinkman, H F L Meyer, T R Dawson, N Petrovic and Karl Fabel have played their part in this cooperative effort; w;hie some composers, such as A Karlstrom, E Fielder, T Marlow and the authors of this booklet, have specialized in the Construction Task.
