700 Chess Puzzles Problems With Solutions By W J Baird
eBook (PDF): $0.00
The Chess Problems contained in this volume are the product of the labour and recreation of some fourteen years. Although a large number of the problems have been republished in numerous papers at... More > home and abroad, only the name of the publication in which each originally appeared is given. Exclusive of the prize list, in about a dozen cases with a view to an improvement, they have been more or less reset since their first appearance. The six added to this collection in letterpress at the end of the Solutions are the last composed. To the best of my belief there is not a single instance of a dual continuation, and not being an admirer of dual mates, they are very few and far between. A list of prize problems will be found, but it must not be taken for granted that it contains the essence of the volume. Solutions are given in full for the benefit of those who are not far advanced in the Problem Art. As will be seen, red represents the White, and blue the Black pieces. Brighton 1st May, 1902< Less
