Bridge Books

We would like to present a list of all published Bridge Books, and would like to make this list as comprehensive as possible. There are many bridge authors who have contributed to the learning of the game, and we would like to recognize them with our efforts. We also realize that many bridge book authors have published other books on different subjects, but we have not included these titles. We have also attempted to include as many international authors as possible. If a certain book is not listed, please notify us, and we shall include it. We need your help in compiling this list, because you, the reader and visitor, are our best asset and source.

 

Bridge Library

 

The authors have been listed alphabetically.
     
A to F
 
G to L
     
M to R
 
S to Z

 

The dates given are an uncertain factor since many bridge books have been re-edited, re-named, re-worked, re-published, re-printed, and re-issued. We have not added a link to a Website, where you may order a particular book. There are several Internet addresses where you can order a particular book. Following are some helpful hints:

We have also given credit to those bridge players who are not the author, but have co-authored, contributed to, edited or illustrated the bridge book before the publishing date. We have tried to give credit to those ladies who have published bridge books before their marriage, and afterwards changing their last names. It must be noted that some of the bridge books are no longer printed, or are being reprinted, and are not available at this time. It is also possible that some bridge books, which are being edited for re-publication, are listed as not available. We can not be certain that a bridge book is out of print. Please be sure to check.

ISBN: This is a unique machine-readable 10-digit identification number, which marks any book unmistakably, and over 160 countries and territories are officially ISBN members. This system of cataloging has been in effect since the early 1970s and earlier publications, unless reprinted, do not always carry such an ISBN number. Books published in countries not bound by the ISBN number are also included.

Every ISBN will consist of thirteen digits beginning 2007. The thirteen digit number is divided into five parts of variable length, each part separated by a hyphen.

The ISBN identification number is also unique to the Publishing House. Therefore, books by authors who have their works published by other publishing houses carry a different ISBN identification number. The ISBN identification number is therefore also a means employed to identify the individual publishing house. As a consequence, the included ISBN identification number is the number used by the specified Publishing Company, not for all publications and reprints of the book.

EAN.UCC: As of January 1, 2007, the book industry has begun using 13-digit ISBNs to identify all books in supply chain. Two new prefixes are being created. The 978 prefix will be added in front of the current ISBN-10 and with the addition of a new check digit at the end, the new ISBN-13 is created. This change is taking place to fully align the numbering system for books with the global EAN.UCC identification system that is widely used to identify most other consumer goods worldwide.

ISSN: The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) is an eight-digit number which identifies all periodical publications as such, including electronic serials. Each ISSN assigned to a serial publication is registered in an international database: the ISSN Register. It is the most comprehensive and authoritative source for the identification of serial publications world-wide. It is managed by a world wide network of 81 National Centres coordinated by an International Centre based in Paris, backed by Unesco and the French Government. The ISSN is used by various partners throughout the information chain: libraries, subscription agents, researchers, information scientists, newsagents (through its barcode version).

LC: An LC included in the description is the LC Control Number which is the identification number for indexing and cataloging by the Library of Congress.

ASIN: The Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN) is a product identification number used by Amazon.com. Despite the name, it is not a "standard" in any real sense, and is valid only for referring to products within the Amazon.com network of sites. Also known as: Amazon Standard Item Number. This indentification number may be the identical number as the corresponding ISBN number or other cataloging numbers.

OCLC: Founded in 1967, OCLC Online Computer Library Center is a nonprofit, membership, computer library service and research organization dedicated to the public purposes of furthering access to the world's information and reducing information costs. More than 41,555 libraries in 112 countries and territories around the world use OCLC services to locate, acquire, catalog, lend and preserve library materials.

Whenever possible, we have included a link to a picture of the front cover of the respective book.

We have attempted to construct these pages with the least amount of inconvenience to the visitor. If, however, the first letters of the surnames of the authors do not match and are on different web pages, then the "back button" may take the visitor to the wrong section. Apologies in advance for this inconvenience but we have found no other solution.

Scott, General

(Short biography: From 'General Scott' by General Marcus J. Wright. General Scott was always extremely gallant and courteous to ladies and greatly enjoyed the society of intelligent and refined women. As stated in the early part of this work, General Scott had been an industrious student of the law, and the knowledge thus acquired was of great service to him throughout his eventful career. He was well read in the standard English authors--Shakespeare, Milton, Addison, Pope, Johnson, Goldsmith, Dryden, Hume, Gibbon, and the early English novelists. He was a constant reader of the best foreign and American periodicals and the leading newspapers of the day. He was of the opinion that wars would never cease, and therefore took little interest in peace societies.

He held the opinion that the study of the higher mathematics had a tendency to lessen the ability to move armies in the field, yet expressed regret that he had not in his youth given more study to the subject. He was very fond of whist, but was quite irritated when he was beaten and generally had a ready excuse for his defeat. On one occasion he was playing a very close game, in the midst of which he left the table to expectorate in the fireplace. He lost the game and said to one of the party, "Young gentleman, do you know why I lost that game?" "No, sir," was the response. "It was because I got up to spit." Scott was also a good chess player.

He used tobacco somewhat excessively until the close of the Mexican War, after which time he renounced its use entirely. He was exceedingly vain of his accomplishments as a cook and specially prided himself on the knowledge of how to make good bread. He spent several days in instructing the cook at Cozzens' Hotel, West Point, in this art, .....

Also 'The Gaming Table': Its Votaries and Victims, Vol. I: General Scott, the father-in-law of George Canning and the Duke of Portland, was known to have won at White's L200,000, thanks to his notorious sobriety and knowledge of the game of Whist. The general possessed a great advantage over his companions by avoiding those indulgences at the table which used to muddle other men's brains. He confined himself to dining off something like a boiled chicken, with toast and water; by such a regimen he came to the Whist table with a clear head; and possessing as he did a remarkable memory, with great coolness of judgment, he was able honestly to win the enormous sum of L200,000.

A periodical in the humanities founded in 1892. In later years the magazine became a major magazine that was focused on literature and criticism. The magazine has been published since 1892 by the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, and the Sewanee Review has never missed an issue. Many of the period's Whist authors published articles in the Sewanne Review, such as 'Cavendish', and Mr. W.B. Hall with his article 'The Evolution of Whist', October 1895, Volume 3, page 457.

Shakespeare, William

As welcomed to the historian the news of William Shakespeare referring to any game of cards in his works might be, the playwright and poet never referred to any game of cards in any of his plays or sonnets. Many in the search believe to have found one reference in the play 'Anthony and Cleopatra', Act IV, XV, 3-22, first enacted in the year of 1623. The monologue is by Anthony and is as follows:

Here I am Antony,
Yet cannot hold this visible shape, my knave.
I made these wars for Egypt, and the Queen
Whose heart I thought I had, for she had mine,
Which whilst it was mine had annexed unto’t
A million more, now lost—she, Eros, has
Packed cards with Caesar, and false-played my glory
Unto an enemy’s triumph.
Nay, weep not, gentle Eros. There is left us
Ourselves to end ourselves.
(IV.xv.3–22)

These verses were presumably first reported by 'Cavendish', (Mr. Henry Jones), in the publication: The Laws and Principles of Whist: Stated And Explained And Its Practice Illustrated on an Original Systme by Means of Hand Played Completely Through, Eleventh Edition, Revised and Greatley Enlarged, 1876, London, England, Publisher: Thos. (Thomas) De La Rue, (it is not known whether this passage also was included in previous editions), page 34, with the heading of Whist, where it is verbatim published: 'The game of trump is also mentioned by Shakespeare in "Antony and Cleopatra," Act iv., scene 12 (first published 1623)'. (Note: it is the intention of the author to establish the source for this particular game of cards and believes that he has found proof in this one play that Shakespeare refers to a game of cards, which 'must be' the game of trump.

However, upon more study and professional research the conclusion has been reached that this assumption is false and that the actual interpretation of these lines lie not in the mention of certain terms and/or designations employed in the terminology of any card game, Trump or Whist, but that Antony explains to Eros, his knave (or valet or man-servant) that after Cleopatra's ships abandon Antony in battle for the second time, the general faces the greatest defeat of his military career. Antony is accustomed only to victory, and his understanding of self leaves little room for defeat, either on the battlefield or in terms of love. As a Roman, Antony has a rigid perception of himself: he must live within the narrowly defined confines of the victor and hero or not live at all. Here, he complains to his trusted attendant, Eros, about the shifting of his identity. He feels himself helplessly changing, morphing from one man to another like a cloud that turns from a dragon to a bear to a lion as it moves across the sky. He tries desperately to cling to himself—"Here I am Antony"—but laments he "cannot hold this visible shape." Left without military might or Cleopatra, Antony loses his sense of who he is. Rather than amend his identity to incorporate this loss, rather than become an Antony conquered, he chooses to end his life. In the end, he clings to the image of himself as the unvanquished hero in order to achieve this last task: "(t)here is left us / Ourselves to end ourselves."

(Notation: These rules, evidently an imitation of the better-known 'Bob Short's' rules by Robert Withy, have been attributed to Mrs. Barbauld (Mrs. Anna Letitia Barbauld, 1743 - 1825 ?), apparently because she adopted the pseudonym for a tract unconnected with cards.) (Note: this was not a publication per se, but rather a simple, plain card with twelve rules printed on each side. The dimensions of the card is unknown.)

Also the engraved pictures are of such great quality, the list would sorely be lacking if absent.) Researches into the History of Playing Cards; with Illustrations of the Origin of Printing and Engraving on Wood. Pages 40. By Robert Triphook, London, 1816. (Only two hundred and fifty copies were printed of this beautiful book, which at once took its place as the leading authority on its subject, and attracted generous tributes of admiration from the Continental writers on playing cards. The book contains a Frontispiece and 17 plates, besides illustrations in the text. In the Appendix are: extracts from the works of many foreign authors which are not otherwise very accessible, such as the essays by the Abbe' Rive, Court de Ge'belin, and Lollio.

Sobel, Alexander (1901 - 1972)

Mr. Alexander Sobel has been elected to the Bridge Hall of Fame and was a pioneer in the early days of the evolution of the game of bridge. His articles and essays on the game have rarely been published, but his influence has been immense. He is credited with the authorship of "60 Days", a popular bi-monthly diary column. It became a monthly column called "30 Days" for a short time and then returned to its original format of "60 Days". He was Editor of and for the West Coast publication "Contract Bridge Forum", and contributing Editor for the Bridge Encyclopedia.

Sporting Magazine, The

- or Monthly Calendar of the Transactions of The Turf, The Chase, And every other Diversions Interesting to the Man of Pleasure, Enterprize and Spirit. (Note: Published from 1792 to 1836. The magazine was the first English sporting periodical to devote itself to every type of sport, thus providing the historian with a reasonably comprehensive source. It was published in London, but was able to offer extensive coverage of events nationally due to the fact that the Editor Mr. Wheble, had established a wide ranging network of informants, writers and contributors throughout the shires.

Sporting Magazine

There were many articles about the game of Whist and the Rules for Playing the Game of Whist were published in Volumes I and II between the years 1793 and 1817. Much of the information in the magazine stemmed from the readers themselves, who were urged to contribute material. The editor insisted that information should be accurate, rejecting contribution where he had doubts. Readers would also respond to one another's letters and sharp debates often occurred within the magazine's columns, acting as an additional check on the accuracy of material. The editor refused to settle disputes, but was very conscientious in supplying the best information available to him. Cumulatively, this provided an immense amount of detail. The journal transformed the subject by providing a treatment that was both deeper and more wide reaching in scope. Unlike its predecessors, it embraced everything that was regarded as sport and aimed at presenting an accurate, accessible record. By doing so, it mapped the subject out, presenting a thematic framework, which others were to develop. A range of issues that were to become associated with established sporting literature first became accessible to a wider audience via its columns. By the early 1820s, the magazine was the fourth best selling monthly periodical in London.

Temple Bar - (1860 - 1906)

The most successful of Cornhill's rivals (namely The Cornhill Magazine, which was the premier fiction-carrying magazine of the century and was the brainchild of George Smith, of Smith, Elder and Co.). This was a London journal, issued monthly with a cover price of one Shilling. However, it was originally unillustrated. The journal was launched in December 1860 by John Maxwell with the gifted bohemian author George Sala as its editor.

George Sala was also a main contributor of fiction and wrote his The Seven Sons of Mammon (1862) and The Strange Adventures of Captain Dangerous (1862) for the periodical. Another popular feature in the magazine's early numbers was Miss Braddon's Aurora Floyd (1863). In a preface to the first volume George Sala wrote that the editor and proprietor had toyed with the idea of woodcut illustrations, but decided instead to go for an extra sixteen page of text. As a result, for his one Shilling the reader had a massive 144 pages.

Temple Bar

The contents were miscellaneous, with a strong emphasis on serialised fiction. But the initial circulation of 30,000 soon dropped and the chronically impecunious John Maxwell sold the property of the magazine to George Sala around 1862. Editorship later passed to Richard and then to George Bentley enjoying a long period of prosperous stability, merging with the ailing Bentley's Miscellany in 1868.

Contributors under the Bentley regime were Wilkie Collins, Maarten Maartens, Charles Reade, Henry Kingsley, George Gissing, R. L. Stevenson and Anthony Trollope. It also carried high quality women's fiction from Mrs Henry Wood, Rhoda Broughton and A B Edwards.

George Bentley died in 1895, and the house of Bentley went under in 1898. Macmillan kept the now unfashionable magazine going for another few years. Unlike many of the rivals to Cornhill, Temple Bar contrived to create a distinct personality for itself as a bohemian-flavoured journal.

Contributors for the game of Whist were Mr. A. Stuart, Volume 90, Page 118, September 1890; Mr. W.P. Courtney, Volume 97, page, 527, April 1893; and other Whist experts of that time.

Horr, 1905, Published by Longmans, Green and Co., London, England

Note: the person of T. Cadell is Thomas Cadell. Thomas Cadell (1742-1802) entered the London book trade in 1758 as an apprentice to Andrew Millar. He entered in partnership with Millar in 1765, and became the sole proprietor in 1767. He was perhaps the leading bookseller in London until his retirement in 1793. He was succeeded by the firm of Cadell & Davies, consisting of his son Thomas Cadell (1773-1836) and William Davies (died 1820). Thomas Cadell Jr. acted as sole proprietor after the death of William Davies, and the firm came to a conclusion with his own death in 1836. Their relationship is unknown.

Note: The first book by Alexander Thomson (1763-1803), a minor Scottish poet who wrote verse and essays on a variety of subjects (choice, novels, taste, Scottish literature, etc). The first ten cantos detail the playing of whist, and the final two examine the allure of card playing and gaming in general, followed by a sonnet on the same.

Note: Compare also The Rape of the Lock - Der Lockenraub by Alexander Pope written in 1712 and 1714 detailing the card game of Ombre in poetic form.

Trezel, Roger

Note: According to a Phrygian tradition, an oracle at Telmissus, the ancient capital of Phrygia, decreed to the Phrygians, who found themselves temporarily without a legitimate king, that the next man to enter the city driving an ox-cart should become their king. Midas, a poor peasant, happened to drive into town with his father Gordias and his mother, riding on his father's ox-cart. Before Midas' birth, an eagle had once landed on that ox-cart, and this was explained as a sign from the gods. Midas was declared a king by the priests. In gratitude, he dedicated his father's ox-cart to the Phrygian god Sabazios, whom the Greeks identified with Zeus, and either tied it to a post or tied its shaft with an intricate knot of cornel (Cornus mas) bark. It was further prophesied by an oracle that the one to untie the knot would become the king of Asia (today's Asia Minor). In 333 BC, wintering at Gordium, Alexander attempted to untie the knot. When he could find no end to the knot, to unbind it, he sliced it in half with a stroke of his sword, producing the required ends (the so-called Alexandrian solution).

As with Terence Reese and Roger Trezel it is rather the Gordian Knot when attempting to divide the two authors and determine who wrote which publication and on which publication did the two authors indeed collaborate. They were both contemporaries and collaborators, friends and published authors, so the dividing line, one has to assume, cannot be drawn precisely, so we leave it to the book covers we manage to collect. If the name of one author appears, then that publication is listed only under that name; if both names appear on the cover of the publication, then that publication is listed under both names.

There are also several publications, by which the ISBN # is the same as for another publication. The reason is not known for this feature. We have also attempted to list the English publications and the French publications together. It is possible that the publication is listed twice in both languages.

(Note: This series titled Les Cahiers Du Bridge is also designated as Tomes, defined as one of the books in a work of several volumes. The Les Cahiers du Bridge Series of books was authored by Roger Trezel in corraboration with Terence Reese. To what extent Terence Reese contributed in the authorship of this series is unknown and sometimes debated since not all issues carry the name of Terence Reese. It seems that it was a more profitable experience for the two authors if both names appeared on the front covers or cover pages. The series itself was the result of the dissecting of one or several single planned publications. Average number of pages for the series is about 100 pages. The number of tomes is twenty in entirety.

Walker, Arthur Campbell - (1836 - 1887)

Note: Capt. Arthur Campbell-Walker, F.R.G.S., Late Capt. 79th Highlanders - Her Majesty's Royal Bodyguard. In some publications the surname is entered incorrectly and published with two 'l's'. Although the surname is a double name the entry is alphabetically listed under 'W', as does also the Library of Congress. The exact year of his birth is unknown, but records are available showing the year 1836.

Notation in Bibliography Of Playing Cards: On the appearance of the first edition Dr. Pole made a vehement accusation of plagiarism from 'Cavendish' against the author, being unaware that the book was brought out with the sanction of 'Cavendish', to whom the proofs were submitted for revision.

Westminster Papers, The - (also known as: The Westminster Chess Club Papers)

A monthly Journal of Chess, Whist, Game of Skill, and The Drama, published by W. Kent & Co., Paternoster Row, and T. H. Sheppard, 8 Salisbury Court, Fleet St. E.C.; Edinburgh: J. Menzies & Co.; Dublin: McGlashan & ill, 1879. Mr. William Norwood Potter (1840-1895) was a barrister's clerk by profession, and was probably only a relatively weak master chess player, but he was one of the best writers on chess in the 19th century and the pages of his magazine are lively and entertaining. By the time he began the magazine, Mr. William Norwood Potter was already a well-established chess journalist. His gifts as an annotator were on display in the Westminster Papers from about 1868 onwards. Source: Tim Harding. As time moved on, the list of sports increased to include Whist. The date of the demise of the journal is unknown.

The Westminster Chess Club Papers were edited by Telemachus Brownsmith, B.A., April 1868 to April 1879, Volumes 1 through XI. (Notation: (To the number for September 1868 was added the sub-title, 'A Journal of Chess and Whist. 'In May 1869 the title was changed to 'The Westminster Papers. A Monthly Journal of Chess, Whist, Games of Skill and the Drama.' The papers were edited by Charles Mossop, who, as well as most of the leading players of the day, contributed many articles on Whist and other games of cards. Frederic H. Lewis contributed a double dummy problem to nearly every number. Source: Bibliographies of Works on Playing Cards And Gaming by Norton T.

White, Sir Herbert Thirkell (October 1, 1855 - December 27, 1931) - (Pseudonym: Buccaneer)

Sir Herbert Thirkell White attained the rank of Lieutenant Governor and served his country in the British Indian province of Burma between the years of 1905 and 1910 as Governor. Prior to this position he was, between the years 1902 and 1905 the Chief Judge in this territorial colony. His achievements were also literary and he authored several books on the country of Burma, and perhaps best known is A Civil Servant in Burma, published by E. Arnold of London, England, in the year 1913. The publication is based on the 32 years, between 1878 and 1910, in which he spent as a civil servant in that province.

During his commission in the territory of Burma he also continued his passion for the new game of Auction Bridge and authored one book on the subject. This publication enjoyed several re-printings, which were subsequently revised and updated by the author.

Note: Sir Herbert Thirkell White died in St. Ives, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom, on December 27, 1931. St Ives (Cornish: Porth Ia) is a seaside town, civil parish, and port in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The town lies north of Penzance and west of Camborne on the coast of the Celtic Sea. Legend states that the origin of this town is attributed to the arrival of the Irish Saint Ia of Cornwall in the 5th century.

Note: Since Sir Herbert Thirkell Whist was a military man the following definition of buccaneer has been taken from the meaning assigned the word by military personnel. The term buccaneer refers to pirates who were active in the Caribbean during the late 1600s. While most were outright pirates, some were issued letters of marque and sailed as legal privateers. The term buccaneer derives from the Arawak word buccan, a wooden frame for smoking meat, and the French term boucanier, a French hunter who used these type of frames on Hispaniola. These terms were anglicized into the word buccaneer. Source.

Auction Bridge Magazine, columnist, contributor, magaging editor, between 1924 and 1929, Publisher: J. H. Smith Publishing Corporation, New York, New York, United States, LC: 33022385

Note: From a bridge column by Mr. Alan Truscott, dated October 8, 1989, he mourns the demise of the world's oldest bridge periodical, the Bridge International. He wrote, and text quoted:

The English publishers have announced that, for financial reasons, the current issue will be the last.

The first issue was published in May 1926 with the title Auction Bridge Magazine. The editor was Alfred Edye Manning-Foster, who soon dropped the word Auction from the title and continued publication until World War II. It was revived in 1946 by Ewart Kempson, whose sly wit along with a penchant for photographs of babies and animals, enlivened the magazine for the next 19 years.

Later editors, Eric Milnes, Phillip Alder and Alan Hiron, have had shorter tenures and have presided over a change in page format and name. The oldest surviving bridge magazine is The Bridge World published in New York City, which celebrates its 60th birthday this month.

Manning-Foster's original issue presented the reader with some single-dummy problems.

Williams, John - (1761 - 1818) - Pseudonyn: 'Anthony Pasquin'

(Note: One biography of this person reads: 'A scribbler of the lowest class. Although destitute of every pretension to taste, genius, or information, he has from time to time, obtruded a multiplicity of pompous trash upon the Public, viz. the Children of Thespis, the Brighton Guide, the Pin Basket, the Cap, &c. too contemptible to enumerate. In December, 1797, he had the impudence to bring an action against Mr. Faulder, Bookseller in New Bond Street, as the publisher of Mr. Gifford's poem, the Baviad; in one of the notes to which, that gentleman had properly expressed his detestation of "one so lost to every sense of decency and shame, whose acquaintance is infamy, and whose touch is poison." But Mr. Garrow, the counsel for the defendant, shewed that he had libelled every body, from from the royal family down almost to the meanest of their subjects, and that his writings were so immoral and infamous that he had no right to come into a court of justice for damages: accordingly Lord Kenyon interposed, and the cause was stopped. The modest pretension, it seems, of this illiterate libeller is, that he will calumniate all the world, and go to law with whoever has the courage to censure or expose him for it!'

Review by Eric Kokish in the Montreal Review: Take a romp down the Yellow Bridge Road with Mike Dorn Wiss and his multi-talented friend Alan (the Shadow); meet lots of interesting people, experience some unusual slices of Life, and encounter some first-class bridge hands... if you like your bridge in certain settings you will enjoy meeting the Shadow and going on the road with Wiss; it is that sort of book.
