Auction of 'The Famous Game of Chesse-Play'
We received the following announcement of Rupert Powell of Forum Auctions that could be of interest for some of our members:
I wonder if I might draw your attention to a copy of a rare 17th century book on Chess which will be coming up for sale in our auction of Fine Books and Works on Paper on Thursday 29th November. It is a 1673 (sixth) edition of the first published work on chess in English and written by an Englishman, Saul Arthur’s The Famous Game of Chesse-Play, 1673.
