First Edition 4 1/8 x 3 1/4 inches, boards with leather spine, rebacked with original spine laid down retaining original marbled endpapers, some wear to boards at edges, Two volumes bound in one. Published simultaneoulsy in German and translated into English in 1816. Volume one details the strategies of specific chess games and volume two illustrates each move of these games on an engraved reproduction of a chess board hand colored in gold. The chess pieces are represented by various letters printed in red and black. The date on the title page states "AN X" based on a curious tradition of dating books as year one from the date of the French Revolution in 1792. This copy does not contains the engraved plate of a chess board in volume one described in some copies of the book. .
