46 pages with diagrams, tables and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original quarter gray cloth with stiff boards and black lettering to front cover. (Betts: 25-38; (Biblioteca van Der Niemeijeriana: 5254) First edition. The City Club of London was used to holding tournaments, and in 1900 came up with the idea of inviting several leading British masters and prominent amateur players to see how the lesser lights would hold up. The Masters: Joseph Henry Blackburne, Isidor Gunsberg, Francis Joseph Lee, James Mason, Richard Teichmann, Louis Van Vliet. The Amateurs: Ellis Eugene Jones, Thomas Francis Lawrence, Rudolf Johannes Loman, Samuel Passmore, Thomas Physick, A Tietjen, William Ward. Blackburne started well by winning his first four games, but stumbled badly with only two draws in his next five. Teichmann then took a comfortable lead, but Mason made up ground until he was only a half-point behind going into their last round game. However, this turned into a relatively short draw, while Gunsberg closed fast to catch Mason for a share of second place. An excellent showing for Ward, while Blackburne had to be somewhat disappointed with his result. Blackburne placed sixth with a +7 1/2 score. Thomas Francis Lawrence was seventh to claim part of the prize money of two pounds sterling. Filing in behind were in descending order Francis Joseph Lee, Rudolf Johannes Loman, Arthur Ernest Tietjen, Edward Owen Jones, Thomas Physick and last Samuel Passmore defeating Mason for his only win, preventing him for sharing or taking first. Condition: Corners bumped, lightly soiled, some foxing to end pages, spine ends rubbed else a very good copy. N° de ref. de la librería 000489
