"What A Book This Is"--answer

Postby Mr. Checkers on Sat Feb 04, 2006 11:44 am

This has to be the most irregular checker book ever printed. It was also one of the few ever printed on dated water-marked paper. Anyway the text of the book was printed uniformly. But the pages were not trimmed in the way we think most books should be. The cover of the book and the pages are different sizes and shapes. Some pages extend out beyond the cover of the book, while other pages are well within the book itself. And the pages were not uniformly rectangular. You really have to see several copies of it to see what I am trying to say here. "Checker Trivia questions of the Day". What is the name of this fine piece of checker literature and in what year was it printed? (Cont.)

Roger Payne's--"Game of Draughts--1813. If you hold the paper up to the light you will see either 1812 or 1813. (Cont.)
