About this Item

Craftsmen have made sets and pieces from a wide variety of different materials: boxwood, ebony, soft-woods, ivory, bone, glass, precious stones, silver, gold, brass, stainless steel and plastics. The attractive book illustrates and discusses the many different chesspieces which have been made, from sets of Meissen porcelain to simple wartime sets made from cartridge cases. The author traces the history of the game, and describes the few pieces which have survived from the medieval period. Then he considers the contribution of different countries, Europe, Russia and the Middle East. And finally he surveys the wide variety of attractive and individual sets made in the Far East. Illustrated. Previous owners name inside cover. Very slight shelf wear to top of spine on D/J. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 018174
