Book Description The Abbey Library, London, 1977. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good (+). Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 10.75 x 8.25 inches. No inscriptions or marks. A very firm clean and tight copy with slight fading to upper and lower board edges, browning to page edges and margins and no bumping to corners. Dust jacket not price clipped, marked or torn with a little rubbing/creasing to upper edge. Revised edition, translated from the original Polish edition, published 1960. This book sets out, in as entertaining a manner as possible, to follow all the intricacies of the colourful history of the game. With innumerable and very wide-ranging illustrations in black and white and full colour accompanying the very lively test, even the non-player could not fail to be fascinated by this History from its obscure beginnings in the mysterious East, with all the intrigue associated with its evolution, into the game as we know it today. The editor of the English edition, Mr B H Wood, has written a special chapter on the Anglo-Saxon aspects of the game, as well as devoting a considerable amount of time and energy to the revision of the original text, and the end product must surely be a tribute to his efforts. 375pp. We do not use stock photos, the picture displayed is of the actual book for sale. Every one of our books is in stock in the UK ready for immediate delivery. Bookseller Inventory # 004199
