The Chess Player : Containing Franklin's Essay on the Morals of Chess, Introduction to the Rudiments of Chess. by Benjamin Franklin and George Walker.

The Morals of Chess is an essay on chess by the American intellectual Benjamin Franklin, which was first published in The Columbian Magazine in December 1786. Franklin, who was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, played chess from at least 1733. He outlined the essay around 1732, but did not publish it until 1786.

The Morals of Chess Franklin and chess have long been associated in the popular mind largely .

Reprinted from The Columbian Magazine, I (December, 1786), 159–61; incomplete copy:6 American Philosophical Society. Franklin and chess have long been associated in the popular mind largely because of this bagatelle, which was the most widely reprinted product of his Passy press. However, we believe that the essay was originally formulated as early as 1732, and that Franklin in the spring of 1779 was once again recalling material from his earlier life for the amusement of his circle at Passy. Our evidence comes from the commonplace book that Franklin kept from 1730–38.

Dr. Franklin's essay "On the Morals of Chess" and Gen. George Washington's "Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior" regrettably are considered quaint, archaic, and naive in the world we live in today. But, I personally find them to be of a great personal value for my own internal compass.

Should be on the must read once a year list of books!
