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. Surprisingly no main editor is named (possibly Harry Harmer himself in the early years) but there were many section editors and contributors notably Carslake Winter-Wood, Rhoda A Bowles, Philip H Williams who conducted the problem pages for many years, Alain C White, T R Dawson (a major contributor), Rev. E E Cunnington, W Moffatt, I Gunsberg and W A Fairhurst. No more published after June 30 1930


Corners bumped, some light soiling. A very good copy issued without jacket.
