published in 1913. Murray is a scientist, and his writing
shows this: we have discussions about legibility of manuscripts,
theories of the spreading of chess, etc.
What we find in all this is a thorough and precise account of
how chess came into existence, and has spread over the world.
Where many books on the history of chess are best in describing
the modern history, this book is best in telling about the roots.
Also, we find hunderds of historic chess puzzles.
If you really want to know how the origins of the best
game there is are, then read this book.
