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, and 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 descriptions of 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 initial 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.
Volume III, “British Bridge Since WWII”, is still in the embryo stage.
