Staunton's Chess-Player's Handbook

£8.99

Product description

The name 'Staunton' has become so closely associated with chess that the words have become virtually synonymous. All modern tournament chess games are required to be played with Staunton chess pieces. The First International Chess Tournament, London 1851, was organised by Staunton. Revised and edited by E. H. Bermingham, this 1935 edition of Staunton's Handbook incorporates variations and games from his 'Chess Praxis', a brief biographical introduction, and revisions to opening analysis and other content. Includes around 250 games.

Published by G. Bell & Sons Ltd, London, this hard-cover 1935 edition is in a reasonable, used condition, given its age. The blue boards are gilt-stamped on the spine and embossed with a chess piece on the front cover. The corners are turned and the spine is bumped, top and bottom. There are a few spots on the spine. There is a dedication in blue ink, dated 1938/39, on the title page. The book is illustrated throughout. The binding is a little loose and shaken and the pages are yellowing and foxed but free from annotations.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
