DESCRIPTION

Selkirk, George H. The book of chess.: 

Selkirk, George H. The book of chess. A popular and comprehensive guide to all players of that intellectual game with the latest discoveries and full instructions for blindfold chess. London, Houlston and Wright, 1868. 8°. With lots of diagrams. (1 colored frontispiece is missing). VIII, 439 pages. Original decorative publisher binding with gold-decorated front cover and spine. L/N 946; van der Linde II, 46; Betts 10 - 28.

The edition contains an introduction to the game of chess, an overview of the openings, 60 annotated games and a section on endgames with 78 studies. The beautiful binding is in a really astonishing condition for book of 155 years of age. 

Condition: Name on endpaper. Slightly browned and occasionally stained inside and on paper edges. Overall Assessment = Still Very Good! 


Postage EUR (insurance included): Non-EU countries please ask! I try to choose the most cost-effective yet reliable way.

I combine shipping – you always pay just real postage! The packing materials are free.

I send with the so-called "Paketmarke" (for further information https://www.post.at/privat_versenden_paket_paketmarke.php) which is, in general, the most cost-effective and reliable way to send parcels to Austria. One feature is that the shipment costs are defined via the longest and the shortest side of the parcel. The weight is limited to 10 kg. The parcel is also insured up to € 500,-.

  1. PM 045 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel is added max. 45 cm) GER=€10,79, other EU = €14,19
  2. PM 070 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel is added max. 70 cm) GER=€16,24, other EU = €19,69
  3. PM 120 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel are added max. 120 cm) GER=€21,69, other EU = €25,19

Therefore if you win more than 1 lot and the books fit into the same parcel, the shipping costs will be the same as for 1 book. 

Important: Please wait with payment until you get my confirmation email, as the shipping costs have to be calculated.
