DESCRIPTION

"KUNSTSPELEN VOOR LIEFHEBBERS VAN HET SCHAKEN"

RARE, VERY SCARCE AND VERY HARD TO FIND

By P. T. Helvetius van den Bergh (1853)

 

Bergh, P. T. Helvetius van den: "Kunstspelen voor Liefhebbers van het Schaken". Door P. T. Helvetius van den Bergh.

Wijk bij Duurstede, W. F. Stramrood, 1853. IV (including Title page)62 pages. Beautiful private quarter hardback binding with gold print on spine21,5 x 13,6 cm. In Dutch.

 

Good: Ex-libris (inside front cover) and small pencil annotation probably easy to erase (at bottom edge of page 62), both from former owner, Italian collector Mr. Pellegrini. Binding somewhat rubbed on the edges, more important at the ends of the spine. The most important defect is the crack at the side of the entire spine, although it is not complete, since the front cover is still not loose (for how long, I don't know. A new binding may be recommended, especially if the book is going to be consulted frequently). Some browning and few very small spots on a few pages, somewhat more visible on the Title page and 62.

 

L/N 2394, van der Linde II, 98.

 

The edition contains 60 "Kunstspiele". In this book, from page 1, in the odd-numbered pages are printed 2 chess problem diagrams (only 1 in pages 1 and 59) with its statement, and rear, in the even-numbered pages, the solution of the 2 previous chess problems.

 

Rare, very scarce and very hard to find.

 

In the 31 editions of the Klittich-Pfankuch Auktion that I know, 2003 November - 2006 June, and 2008 November - 2020 June, only 1 copy of this booklet was auctioned (lot 1107 of 66 Klittich-Pfankuch Auktion).
