INFORMATION ABOUT THIS E-TEXT EDITION
The following is an e-text of "Chess Strategy," second edition, (1915)
by Edward Lasker, translated by J. Du Mont.

This e-text contains the 167 chess and checkers board game
diagrams appearing in the original book, all in the form of
ASCII line drawings. The following is a key to the diagrams:

For chess pieces,
R = Rook
Kt = Knight

B = Bishop
Q = Queen
K = King
P = Pawn

Black pieces have a # symbol to the left of them, while
white pieces have a ^ symbol to the left of them. For example,
#B is the Black bishop, while ^B is the white bishop. #Kt is
the black knight, while ^Kt is the white knight. This will
let the reader instantly tell by sight which pieces in the
ASCII chess diagrams are black and which are white. Those
who find these diagrams hard to read should feel free
to set up them up on a game board using the actual pieces.
