The Chess Player's Chronicle
Jardback

Description:
"Shakespearean scholar Howard Staunton's impressive, pioneering journal incredibly came out on a weekly basis for the first volume. The notation is naturally of the arcane descriptive variety (""K.P. two, Q.B.P. two""), and many of the games given coyly abbreviate players' names, such as simply referring to ""Mr. P-t"" versus ""Mr. S-a"". Includes articles on the origins of European chess (and the discovery of the Lewis chessmen), the automaton chess player and an account of cheating King Canute's touch move dispute with his thane, Earl Ulf. 416 pages" (EUR 29.00)
