This is a great book for the chess history enthusiast. Bird, one of the great players of the 19th century, gives us a Bird's eye view of chess from his 19th Century point of view. It reviews the history of the game from the 500s to the present (about 1880) including mentions in the poetry of the middle ages (he quotes Chaucer among others). His comments about Phiidor, LaBourdonnais and many of the dominant personalities of the middle to late1800s chess scene are insightful. He does include some actual chess games which are of historical interest, but not practical in view of the advances in chess knowledge and theory of the past 150 years.

Classic writing style with deliberate attention to respect and courtesy. The first hand accounts of interactions with the great players of the day and the retelling of the stories make this book unmatched in chess history.
shustrik
A view of chess history with reviews of 19th century articles. Other than for some items of gossip, often about obscure players, not Avery interesting book. No light reading about chess history contained in the book. It is often boring.
