Second (?) Edition. lxci, 377 pages, many diagrams. Lovely binding with leather spine and leather corners, raised bands, and gilt title on spine, pebbled cloth boards. Attractive crest of Public Library Otago New Zealand stamped in gilt on front board, the only other reminders that this was once a library book are very faint numbers on the spine and a few numbers on the front endpaper, no markings on title page. A rare chess book indeed. The first edition of 1852 is as scarce as this one which apparently appeared without any revision as the errata page is still included.
