"yes" button for a large graphic of the whole dust-cover including
the blurb on the inside fly-leaves ( in a new window ).
This brand new book is very high
quality, sewn binding, hard cased in
dust wrapper, 416 pages, numerous colour pictures, acid free gloss
paper. It corrects some significant errors extant about Bridge,
gives hundreds of long forgotten facts.
It’s not another "how to
play” guide. It’s
about the people, mostly now forgotten, who invented and developed the
game, its rules and systems. It includes pictures and
early items connected with Bridge, for example Duplicate Boards and
even early Bridge card tables.
Who first used the term “Left
hand opponent” and who first
said “Never deny a four card major” are typical areas that
are explored for the first time. The author takes pride in the
response that the book is an "enjoyable read”.
The matching volume, “British
Bridge Between The Wars”, is
written and should be available for January 2018.
“British Bridge Since WWII”, is still in the embryo stage.
EDITION 250 COPIES ONLY.
