1929 First edition (no later dates, no later printings mentioned) full-bound in blue cloth with sun fading to spine and additionally across the top of both boards where they were shelved next to smaller volumes. Very good minus with modest wrinkling of cloth to top of front board. The poet William Blathwayt's copy with his "Virtute et Veritate" bookplate to front pastedown, along with a small bookseller's label showing book originally sold in Bath. The author was a master of "Positionsspiel" -- positional play in chess. Book remains square, otherwise unmarked & undamaged. Reprints are common, the true English first is elusive. Unfortunately, the original errata slip is missing. As the number of notation errors was considerable, we have laid in a modern two-page reprint of the 68 acknowledged errors. 302 pp. followed by two pages of ads. Reduced from $700.
