Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with fading at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly spotted.Description: Revised edition, by J. Du Mont. [First Edition: 1889] From the cover: “THE Author’s aim, in these pages, has been to provide a thoroughly complete and practical series of lessons in Chess. The reader is assumed at the outset to be without any knowledge of the game and the attempt is made to teach him how to play, and to leave him in a position to profit by more advanced treatises. The Rules, the Index to the Openings, and the section on Current Chess Literature, while of special service to young players, will, it is hoped, render the volume useful as a work of reference to more advanced students. Free use has, necessarily, been made of standard works on the game.”Notes: Size: 7½" x 5". Yellow boards with Black titling to the Spine & Upper Board. 113 pages.
