No principal editor is given in the text; various regular contributors. The Chess Amateur ran for 24 volumes from October 1906 to June 1930, each volume running from October until the following September except the final volume 24 which ceased after 9 issues. This important and successful periodical was published by Harry Harmer in Stroud until September 1913 and then by Stroud News Publishing Co.

E E Cunnington, W Moffatt, I Gunsberg and W A Fairhurst. No more published after June 30 1930.
