Alternative Views:


The standard textbook for chess players for over half a century, Howard Staunton's classic work was first published in 1847. Its author was the only British player to have been recognized as the world's leading player of his time and lent his name to the style of pieces now used in all major tournaments. 

Beginning with a section of basic instructions for the novice, Staunton goes on to discuss the full complexities of the game. His practical advice on middle and endgame play is as relevant today as when first expounded. Enthusiasts will find the analyses of the 'romantic openings' intriguing and a rich source for new ideas. The book is clearly illustrated throughout and includes a foreword by Raymond Keene, International Grandmaster.

An authoritative guide to the game, this fascimile of the original edition is a fruitful source of ideas for the chess player of today.
