A Note From Luke

Rare. Contains the paper chess set and plates, but if a paper chessboard is called for in this particular impression, it is lacking. According to van der Linde, I, 416-417, this would appear to be the second impression, which includes pp. 108-58, ommitted from the first impression, but being on a subject unrelated to chess. LN551 however, lacks pages 108-58, but is stated to the second impression. This impression, with pages 108-159 is not in LN.
