CHECKER BOOK WITH IT's OWN CHECKERBOARD

Postby Palomino on Tue Jan 23, 2007 9:42 pm

Image Robert Pike's book "Play Winning Checkers" comes with a folding checkerboard but it was not the first. Which 19th century checker book came with it's own checkerboard folded up inside the front cover? Over the years most of these checkerboards have been lost, therefore many who have this book do not realize a checkerboard originally came with the book.
