"Payne's--Game of Draughts"--answer

Postby Mr. Checkers on Sun Feb 19, 2006 12:37 pm

Today when we think of William Payne's--"Game of Draughts" the word "rare" comes to mind. "Checker Trivia question of the Day". Going back a little over 100 years ago what would this extremely rare book be selling for (in the checker book dealers listings of that day)? (Cont.)
