Philidor (1726 - 1795) was the greatest chess master of the 18th century. Already in 1749 his work "L'Analysis du jeu des Echecs" was published with his chess strategy. Its contents are still of great importance today, it was a groundbreaking work. Philidor's sentence "The pawns are the soul of chess..." became legendary. The first part of the present edition is a new edition of the 1749 and 1777 editions. The second part contains new openings and endgames as well as instructions for blindfold play.
