The Game of Draw-Poker, Mathematically Illustrated; Being: WINTERBLOSSOM, Henry T.

About this Item: New York: Wm. H. Murphy, 1875, 1875. Duodecimo. Original blue cloth, front cover lettered in gilt within black border. Spine lightly sunned and a little worn at ends, faint rubbing to covers, front endpapers loosening with short closed tears, light staining to clippings. A very good copy. First edition of this early guide to poker, covering not only the technicalities of the game, but also the psychology: poker is "not only a selfish game, but one that every subterfuge that can be brought to bear is introduced" (p. 10). A contemporary owner has pasted in a clipping of the New York Sun's review of the book to the rear endpapers, dated 10 February 1875, and the New York Tribune's review of Schenk's Rules for Playing Poker to the front endpapers, dated 8 February 1875. The close dates of review make it difficult to ascertain which work has precedence as the first American book on poker, but this work is generally cited as such. The author has never been identified, but the New York Times Review of 12 February 1875 (not included) stated that he is understood to be a member of the Lotos Club, a literary club based in New York of which Mark Twain was also a member. A green cloth binding variant is also known, with the same design, without known priority. OCLC lists ten copies in institutions. Jessel 1706. Seller Inventory # 127827
