Hello!

I'd though I'd share with you what is perhaps the rarest item in my chess variant collection. This book is is no mere copy of H.J.R Murray's A History of Chess
(which everyone on this forum should own by the way, link below), it is of the original Oxford press print run, one of only five that I know exist. Published in 1913, it is now around one hundred and five years old, a true rarity indeed.

Buy a modern copy of the book (the #1 must have): https://www.amazon.com/History-Chess-Original-1913/dp/163220293X/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1513985991&sr=8-3&keywords=a+history+of+chess

Indeed it is certain that Chess Variants make me happy.
