TO

THE LIBERAL PATRON OF CHESS,

is respectfully inscribed by

the author

PREFACE

that a few prefatory words are required by way of explanation. Several

previous composers have come before the public in the same manner,

among whom I may enumerate Mr. Kling, Mr. Brown of Leeds, and J.

B. of Bridport. Their example has given me confidence, and I venture

to hope that the present collection will be found to bear some features

especially distinctive of English problems, such as may justify my

publishing it in a separate form.

It is certain that the great body of Chess amateurs have always felt

an especial interest in the composition and solution of problems.

For ten persons who take up a magazine or newspaper to examine a

game, probably a hundred may be found who only look to the prob-

lems. How often do we see a man of powerful brain devoting a spare

half hour to the careful scrutiny of a diagram in the Illustrated London

News. This study is rewarded by that legitimate gratification which the

successful exertion of the intellect always brings with it. But the same

man would not, and could not, have devoted the necessary time and

energy to a difficult contest over the board.

The innumerable solutions of those problems constantly forward-

ed to the Era, the Illustrated London News, the Field, and many other

newspapers, all agree with one consent in the same story, viz., the in-

creasing popularity of problem making and solving.

Problems are indeed the poetry of Chess. The same depth of imagi-

nation, the same quick perception of the beautiful, the same fecundity

of invention, which we demand from the poet, are to be found, under

a different form, in the humble labours of the problematist. Surely,

without pressing the analogy too far, we may say that the thirty-two

5

pieces form the alphabet of the composer, while the Chess board is

the paper, and the positions finally resulting may be fairly likened to

so many stanzas. Nor are painting and sculpture alien themes. But

why should I proceed

“To paint new colours in the bow of Heaven

And throw fresh perfume on the violet.”

but strike the student with some surprise to discover how few names,

comparatively speaking, are inscribed on the honourable roll of in-

ventors. From the illustrious Damiano downwards, the following

brief register includes, I believe, most of the celebrities to our own

day:—Lolli, Ponziani, Stamma, D’Orville, Küper, Mendheim, Kiese-

ritzky, and Silbersmidt. In our own time, we have indeed a brilliant

constellation of genius, in which Anderssen, Kling, Bayer, Horwitz,

and Grosdemange, among our continental brethren—Angas, Bolton,

Bone, K. A. Browne, J. B. of Bridport, Campbell, M‘Arthur, Grimshaw,

T. Smith, C. W. of Sunbury, and Turton, among ourselves, with Theod-

ore Brown, S. Lloyd, and E. B. Cook in America—shine pre-eminent.

Coming now to compare the ancient with the modern school of

problems, I feel much diffidence in attempting so delicatc a task. It

has been justly observed by a clever Spanish writer that there is as

much difference between the styles of two skilful problem composers

as between the paintings of Raphael and Titian, the one excelling in

expression, the other in colour. Similarly one problematist is known

for his originality and brilliancy of conception, while another excels

in giving that artistic finish which really constitutes the perfect prob-

lem. In truth, the beauty of a problem does not consist so much in the

intricacy of the theme as in the manner in which the idea is treated

or woven in by the composer. The finest end games have often a very

simple solution, but it is so hidden among numerous other modes of

play which mislead the solver that it is very difficult to discover.

The main feature in the works of the earlier composers is the great

number of moves required for their solution. There are in general few

variations, but a series of forced checks and bold sacrifices conducts

the student to the final mate. Though difficult to solve, they were com-

preface 7

count of their intricacy and ingenuity, they lack the depth and com-

plexity which characterise the best productions of the present day.

Perhaps the most convenient way of classifying problems is to di-

vide them into three main branches—viz., 1. Ordinary problems, i. e.,

those in which mate is to be given in a certain number of moves; 2.

Conditional problems, i. e., those in which mate is to be given by a

particular piece or Pawn, or upon a particular square, or in which the

mate is hampered by some similar stipulations; 3. Suicidal Problems,

i. e., those in which White compels Black to checkmate him in a cer-

tain number of moves. The last two species are manifestly unpopular

with English players of the present day. They are more artificial, more

unnatural, less practical, and less instructive than the former. Upon

this head I cannot better express my deliberate judgment than in the

language of Herr Lowenthal in his preface to the Era Problem Tourna-

ment. “Suicidal and conditional problems have gone out of fashion,

and the inference is, that the fanciful modes of play which they illus-

trate have fallen into desuetude. Few games are now played in which

the giver of odds undertakes to compel his adversary to mate him or

to give mate on a marked square, and the kind of problems referred

to have consequently lost their use, and with it their interest. We have

fewer problems in which it is almost insuperably difficult to hide the

design, fewer still of those interminable studies in which the moves

approach in point of number to the tales of the thousand and one

nights. In short, mere trifles are disregarded, and ponderous puzzles

are thrown aside. The lovers of problems are turning to the elegant,

the original, and the practically useful, and in that way can render

their pursuit profitable to the student and interesting to the accom-

plished Chess-player.’’

form, but otherwise follow the original.

All problems have been computer-tested, using Matthieu Le-

schemelle’s Problemiste. Found errors have been indicated below the

diagram as follows: [†] indicates a problem without a solution in the

stipulated number of moves, [*] indicates a problem with multiple so-

lutions, and [§] a problem with short solution(s). Details have been

added, in brackets, to the solutions, though minor errors have been

silently corrected.
