First published in 1913, Murray's work remains the most comprehensive discussion of the sources for chess history and of chess problems. The aim of the study is threefold: to present as complete a record as possible of the varieties of chess which have existed; to investigate the ultimate origin of these games; and to trace the development of the modern European game since the first appearance of its ancestor, the Indian chaturanga, in the seventh century CE. Reprint.
