About this title

Synopsis:

An illustrated guide to the rules, techniques and strategy of chess from the basic elements of the game to professional play

From Library Journal:

Catalog of the National Gallery exhibition of nearly 600 objects from British country house collections, this vast book begins with very brief essays by the stable of Country Life writers (Mark Girouard on power of the gentry, Sir Oliver Millar on portraiture, Francis Haskell on British collecting, etc.). Entries on the objects follow, arranged by broad periods or themes (Tudor Renaissance, Sporting Life, the Highlands, etc.). Many of the objects are outstanding, but without any unifying theme this collection appears to be more successful as an exhibit than as a book with something overall to say. The color illustrations are very good, but the tone of the entries varies from author to author. Attractive, but not essential; prefer the works by Girouard or Luke Herrmann. Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Libs.
