Excerpt from Chess The game of Chess is played by two persons or parties; each having at command Sixteen figures or men, which are moved upon a chequered board. The chess-board is a square, divided by intersecting lines into sixty-four equal smaller squares. These smaller squares are coloured (to facilitate calculation) of a dark and light colour alternately.1 For play it is a rule to place the board so that each player has a white square at his right hand corner. There are thirty-two chessmen, Sixteen belonging to each player. The men of one side are distinguished from those of the other by a different colour one set being of a light colour and called white, and the other being of a dark colour and called black. The following diagram represents a chess-board with the men arranged in proper order for play. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Game of the Chesse So long as the only known method of printing from a raised surface was confined to the cutting each page on a block of wood, the labour of prepa ring to print was so tedious and slow, that this, the most skilful part of the whole operation, required the largest amount of the labour employed, and consequently that the whole of the process, and the power of practising it,were of necessity entrusted and taught to the whole of the persons employed; and it is too consistent with the selfishness of human nature for us to be sur prised that these men (probably mere labourers originally) should, when in possession of this valuable secret, and notwithstanding the oaths of secresy administered to them, desire to practise it in´a greater degree for their own benefit than by working for others. Nor did the introduction of moveable types, cut singly or in words on separate blocks, very greatly facilitate the process, or render the skilled labour required much less.
