Title: 700 Chess Problems
Author:
Description:

PREFACE
The Chess Problems contained in this volume are the product of
the labour and recreation of some fourteen years. I say "labour,"
because I am not such a Chess enthusiast as to believe that a collection
such as this can be produced without persistent application
partaking of the nature of work; and "recreation," because
the work has been a pleasure-how great a pleasure only a composer
can fully realize. Although a large number of the problems
have been republished in numerous papers at home and abroad,
only the name of the publication in which each originally appeared
is given. Exclusive of the prize list, in about a dozen cases
with a view to an improvement, they have been more or less reset
since their first appearance. The six added to this collection in letterpress
at the end of the Solutions are the last composed.
To the best of my belief there is not a single instance of a dual
continuation, and not being an admirer of dual mates, they are
very few and far between.
A list of prize problems will be found, but it must not be taken
for granted that it contains the essence of the volume.
Solutions are given in full for the benefit of those who are not far
advanced in the Problem Art. As will be seen, red represents the
White, and blue the Black pieces.

1st May, 1902
