Description:
Written in 1898, the stated purpose of this book is to elucidate those processes upon which every ruse, trick, artifice, and strategem known in chessplay, is founded; consequently, this treatise is devoted to teaching the student how to win hostile pieces, to queen his pawns, and to checkmate the adverse king. All the processes are determinate, and if the opponent becomes involved in any one of them, he should lose the game.
