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-L
 
M-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:

Internet Book Shop

 

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.

Master Point Press

Master Point Press grew out of Canadian Master Point magazine (1992-1997), which was published in Toronto, Canada by Mr. Ray Lee and Linda Lee. The company began publishing books in 1994.

Simple Squeezes, 2007, Publisher: published privately by the author, United Kingdom.

Note from author: This is the first book in a series of eight on Bridge Squeezes and introduces the subject. It is aimed at experienced players who are ready to improve their playing ability and wish to understand more about these fascinating positions. Each position is shown as a diagram showing the cards remaining and how the position is played. There are then several examples taken from actual play, which are drawn from several sources – the author’s own experience, friends, books and newspaper articles. These examples show how the basic position was reached and the preparation needed to achieve it. The key requirements for a squeeze are explained in simple terms and each type of threat encountered is described and named. The five fundamental attributes and requirements for a squeeze are developed and explained and their relevance in executing a simple squeeze are developed.

Simple Squeezes: Part 1, 2007, Publisher: Four O'Clock Press, London, England, ISBN-10: 1906146527 / ISBN-13: 1906146527 (Previous ISBN: 1906146527)

Moore, Edward - (Pseudonym is Adam Fitzadam or Adam Fitz-Adam)

The World for the Year, One Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty Three, London, England, Publisher: Robert & John Dodsley, 1753-6. Folio. 4 Volumes. First Edition with the original 209 numbers bound together. 'Through Lyttelton's influence Edward Moore was appointed in 1753 editor of 'The World', a weekly periodical started in that year, and devoted to satirising the vices and follies of fashionable society. With the exception of Edward Moore, who under the nom de guerre of Adam FitzAdam wrote sixty-one out of 210 numbers, the contributors were men of fashion (they included Lords Lyttelton, Bath, and Chesterfield, Soame Jenyns, Horace Walpole, and Edward Lovibond), and Edward Moore was permitted to take the entire profits of the venture. The circulation averaged from two thousand to three thousand copies. After a course of four years 'The World' was brought to a close with an announcement of the dangerous illness of the editor, and by a curious coincidence Edward Moore, who was then in good health, barely survived the revision of the collective edition, dying at his house in South Lambeth on March 1, 1757.

Note (quoted): Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science, Warsaw University of Technology, Plac Politechniki 1. Abstract: This paper describes the results of applying artificial neural networks to the double dummy bridge problem. Several feed-forward neural networks were trained using resilient back-propagation algorithm to estimate the number of tricks to take by players NS in fully revealed contract bridge deals. Training deals were the only data presented to the networks. The best networks were able to perfectly point the number of tricks in more than one third of deals and gained about 80% accuracy when one trick error was permitted. Only in less than 5% of deals the error exceeded 2 tricks. Source: Google Books.

New York Tribune, The
This newspaper was founded and established by Mr. Horace Greeley, 1800 – 1872, in the year 1841 and was long considered one of the leading newspapers in the United States. In 1924 the newspaper was merged with the New York Herald to form the New York Herald Tribune, which ceased publication in 1967. Mr. Horace Greeley, with his newspaper, reported on everything happening in the world because he believed that information was knowledge, and that knowledge was power.

To this extent he was primary in establishing the modern newspaper innovation of annual Almanacs and Registers. The link, a .pdf file, is a short summary offered for that period because the 'scientific' game of Whist was considered a sport, a gambling adventure, a leisure activity, and a pastime. The attempt has been made to present the The Tribune Almanac and Political Register of 1901 and include the text listed under Sports - Whist. This particular issue celebrated the turn of the century from the 1800s to the 1900s, which, as the unnamed editorialist particularly noted, occurs in only a second.

Most of the titels of the following books and publications are in the language of Turkey and or Hungary. We have no translations for these titles, and they may not pertain to the game of bridge. The alphabet in Turkey and Hungary is also different and the characters and letters will not appear in sensible form if copied. Therefore a different method of presenting the titles has been chosen. The following list has been copied from the Library of Congress. The letters may or may not appear correctly on your monitor.

Petschler, Ingrid - Ingrid Petschler website

Zu eigener Person; 1961 wurde ich in Worpswede (in der Nähe von Bremen) geboren. In meiner Studentenzeit habe ich schon Bridge gelernt. 1997 wurde ich von meinem Bridgeclub (München-Planegg) gefragt, ob ich Bridge unterrichten möchte. Ich war sofort davon überzeugt, daß dies genau das Richtige für mich wäre. Daraufhin habe ich am 28.09.1997 meine Prüfung zur Bridgeübungsleiterin absolviert. Seit diesem Zeitpunkt unterrichte ich mit grosser Freude Bridge in München. Am 08.04.2002 habe ich als erste aus Bayern die Prüfung zur Bridgelehrerin beim Deutschen Bridgeverband bestanden. Die entsprechende Lizenz wird nach Erlangung einer bestimmten Anzahl von Masterpunkten ausgehändigt, was bei mir noch nicht der Fall ist (siehe Ausbildungsordnung des DBV). Seit Oktober 2002 unterrichte ich neben Forum D auch Forum D+.

Das ist ja reizend: Bridge nach Forum D in Kurzform

Pole, William (1814 - 1900) - William Pole, F.R.S. (Fellow of the Royal Society) - See also: Brunton, John

Note: The Royal Society of London for the Improvement of Natural Knowledge, known simply as the Royal Society, or even the Royal, is a learned society for science that was founded in 1660 and is considered by most to be the oldest such society still in existence. Although a voluntary body, it serves as the academy of sciences of the United Kingdom (in which role it receives funding from HM Government). Fellowship, granted for life, is awarded to scientists after their election by existing fellows, and is considered a great honour. Fellows must be citizens of a member of the Commonwealth of Nations or the Republic of Ireland, while the smaller number of Foreign Members are drawn from other countries. The Royal Society is a member organization of the Science Council. The Royal Society was founded in 1660, only a few months after the Restoration of King Charles II, by members of one or two either secretive or informal societies already in existence. The Royal Society enjoyed the confidence and official support of the restored monarchy.

Short Summary: He was a man of many accomplishments. Having spent his earlier years in various engineering occupations in England, he went out to India in 1844 as professor of engineering at Elphinstone College, Bombay, where he had to first organize the course of instruction for native students, but his health obliged him to return to England in 1848. For the following ten years he worked in London under James Simpson and James Meadows Rendel, and the high reputation he achieved as a scientific engineer gained his appointment in 1859 to the chair of civil engineering in University College, London. He obtained a considerable amount of official work from the government. He served on the committees which considered the application of armour to ships and fortifications (1861-1864), and the comparative advantages of Whitworth and Armstrong guns (1863-1865).

He was secretary to the Royal Commission on Railways (1865-1867), the Duke of Richmonds Commission on London Water (1867-1869), also taking part in the subsequent proceedings for establishing a constant supply, the Royal Commission on the Disposal of London Sewage (1882-1884), and the departmental committee on the science museums at South Kensington in 1885. In 1871 he was employed by the War Office to report on the Martini-Henry rifle, and in the same year was appointed consulting engineer in London to the Japanese government, a position through which he exercised considerable influence on the development of the Japanese railway system. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1861, in recognition of some investigations on color-blindness.

Music was also one of his chief interests. At the age of twenty-two he was appointed organist of St Marks, North Audley Street, in open competition, the next selected candidate being Dr E. J. Hopkins (1818-1901), who subsequently was for fifty years organist of the Temple Church. He took the degree of Bachelor of Music at Oxford in 1860, proceeding to his doctors degree in 1867, and in 1879 published his Philosophy of Music. He was largely concerned in the institution of musical degrees by the University of London in 1877, and for many years acted as one of the examiners. His mathematical tastes found congenial occupation in the study of whist, and as an exponent of the scientific principles of that game he was even earlier in the field than Cavendish. His literary work included treatises on the steam engine and on iron construction, biographical studies of famous engineers, including Robert Stephenson and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Sir William Fairbairn and Sir William Siemens, several books on musical subjects and on whist, and many papers for reviews and scientific periodicals.

Posert, von

Note: The name is presumably a pseudonym of the author according to the Nominalkatalog der ULB Tirol. The designation itself is a bastardization of the French word poser, and translated into English as poseur, meaning one who affects a particular attribute, attitude, or identity to impress or influence others. The word also conveys the meaning of one who is pompous or a person who habitually pretends to be something he is not. The addition of the last letter does not change the root of the word. However, the addition of the von, meaning of or from, such as in German or Austrian the word precedes a place name and together they indicate traditional place of origin. In later years the addition of the word von strongly indicated a higher societal rank, the person accepted as a member of the aristocracy.

Note: The initials 'F. von H.' are not identified, but some clues in bibliographical works point to the person behind the pseudonym to be a fictional character taken from the work of Heinrich von Kleist, 1777-1811, who wrote the opera Der Prinz (Freidrich) von Homburg, and therefore 'F. von H.'

Note: Quedlinburg lies near the Harz Mountains in western Saxon-Anhalt, virtually the heart of Germany. The city represents a rare combination of ancient, medieval and modern historical and artistic treasures. Unlike other German cities such as Aachen, where Charlemagne (Karl der Grosse) held sway over the Franks, Quedlinburg is the birthplace of a Nation. It was namely in Quedlinburg that in 919 A.D. a Diet of noble ducal peers elected a German King, the Saxon Duke Heinrich, monarch of Germany-everything--, rather than merely a ruler of a local domain such as Bavarian or Rheinish or Hessian lands. The town has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Story: Tickets to the Devil is a glimpse into the world of duplicate bridge circa 1960. The novel features characters loosely based on great players of the day along with Powell's own creations all competing in a National Tournament.

Teuflische Spiele ist eine authentische und faszinierende Geschichte über Turnierbridge. Wer nie an grossen Bridge-Veranstaltungen teilgenommen hat, bekommt einen Einblick in die Gedankenwelt dieser "Verrückten", die keinen Aufwand scheuen, um dabei zu sein, und vielleicht auch Appetit, sich einem solchen Ereignis selber einmal zu stellen.

Prince Victor Dhuleep Singh - (Pseudonym employed is Dummy) - Sometimes: Princesse V.D.S.

This name is an actual name from the aristocracy of Great Britain. In the Clubman, a newspaper or gazette of New York, published January 16, 1898 under the heading The Past Week In Society mentions the wedding of Prince Victor Dhuleep Singh to Lady anne Coventry in London. The article states that Bridge and bridgegroom went off in the happiest spirits, and the bridge looked radiant in her smart dress of pale gray with turquois blue. The first part of the honeymoon will be spent in Paris. Prince Victor gave his bridge some lovely jewels, among which were a crown of stars in diamonds, a large diamond bow with an enormous sapphire in the centre, a collar of several rows of pearls divided by diamond clasps a neklace of large uncat emeralds, a long rope of pearls, two emerald pins, and diamond, pearl, and sapphire rings. The Queen sent Prince Victor a beautiful little bronze statuette of herself.

On December 20, 1905, Gertrude Bell, a member of the English society, sent a letter to her mother from Gilbralter. Quote:

Dearest Mother,

We have had such a delightful voyage, the only pity was that it did not last longer. There is nothing so good for Father as being on a ship and he enjoys it so much. Already he looks better and I am much better. As good fortune wd have it we had 3 days of perfect weather and the ship was not very full so that the conditions were ideal. We were both very sorry to get off this morning. I found it an excellent place to work and revised and copied 3 chapters which was pretty good going.

We had plenty of people to play Bridge with; me (sic) friends Prince and Princess Victor Dhuleep Singh among them. I travelled with them on the same ship last year and they are remarkably good Bridge players. She is an Englishwoman and he a Mahratta (I think) but more English than the English and though his appearance is strange he is rather a good sort really - if you do not happen to be his creditor. The Francis Pease children were a great resource, two charming little girls, and as for Father he had made acquaintance with every one on the ship before we left and just hadn't time to begin on the Stoker boys, bless him!

We are going over to Algeciras to lunch and come back here for the night. This hotel seems quite comfortable and we have a luxurious sitting room looking out over the garden of the next house full of orange trees. Our boat goes to Tangier [Tanger] at 11 tomorrow morning.

Many many Christmas good wishes to you all. Your affectionate daughter Gertrude

Note: a Mahratta is a member of a people of the south central part of the subcontinent of India designated as Maharashtra. This is a historical region of west-central India. It was controlled by the Muslim rulers of India from the early 14th to the mid-17th century and incorporated by the British into the province of Bombay in the 19th century. The Marathi-speaking section of the region became a separate state in 1960.

Problematicus - (Pseudonym ?)

Leads At Bridge, 1904. This is an article written for and published in The Bystander, and which was for private circulation only. It consisted of only two pages. (Note: The Bystander was a British weekly tabloid magazine featuring reviews, topical sketches, and short stories. The weekly magazine was published from Fleet Street, and it was founded and established in 1903 by Mr. William Comyns Beaumont, who later edited from 1928-1932. It was notably popular in World War 1 for its many articles.)

Note: The word 'problematicus' is the Latin form of 'problematic', which means 'having the nature of a problem; not shown in fact; questionable; uncertain; unsellted; doubtful. Another definition is: 'logic enuciating or supporting what is possible, but not necessarily true'.

Proctor, Richard Anthony (March 23, 1837 - September 12, 1888) - Pseudonym Five of Clubs

Short Biography: Richard Anthony Prochter, astronomer, born in Chelsea, England, 23 March, 1837. He entered King's college, London, in 1855, and a year later went to Cambridge, where in 1860 he received his bachelor's degree. An early fondness for mathematics led to his making a specialty of astronomy, on which subject he has become the most fertile popular writer of his time. His original work in-eludes numerous researches on the stellar system, the law of distribution of stars, their motions, the relations between the stars and the nebulae, and the general constitution of the heavens. In 1869 he advanced, on theoretical grounds, a theory of the solar corona that has since been generally accepted, and also that of the inner complex solar atmosphere that was afterward advanced by Professor Charles A. Young. He was active in the transit-of-Venus expeditions of 1874 and 1882, and became involved in a dispute with the astronomer royal of England as to the best methods of observation. In 1873-'4 and in 1875-'6 he lectured in the principal cities of the United States, and in 1879 he left England for Australasia, and lectured in all of the larger towns of Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. He visited the United States again in 1884, and, after lecturing in the leading cities, settled in St. Joseph, Missouri In 1866 he was elected a fellow of the Royal astronomical society, and in 1873 he was appointed an honorary fellow of King's college, London. He was honorary secretary of the Royal astronomical society and editor of its proceedings in 1872-'3.

Mr. Proctor established " Knowledge" as a weekly journal in 1881, but changed it to a monthly in 1885, which had a considerable circulation. In it he wrote on a great variety of subjects, including chess and whist. His literary work began in 1863, when he published in the "Cornhill Magazine" an article on "Double Stars." Among his numerous books are "Saturn and its System" (London, 1865); "Gnomonic Star Atlas" (1866); "Half-Hours with the Telescope" (1868)" "Half-Hours with Stars" (1869). "Other Worlds than Ours" (1870)" "Light Science for Leisure Hours" (3 series, 1871, 1873, and 1883) . "Elementary Astronomy" (1871)" "Border Land of Science " i1873)" "Transits of Venus --Past, Present, and Future" and "The Expanse of Heaven" (1874); and "Myths and Marvels of Astronomy" (1877). He has edited "The Knowledge Library," consisting of a series of works made up of papers that have appeared in his journal, among which are several of his own, notably "How to Play Whist" and "Home Whist" (1885). Since he became an American citizen he has published "Chance and Luck" (New York, 1887) "First Steps in Geometry" (1887); "Easy Lessons in Differential Calculus" (1887)" and "Old and New Astronomy," which is now (1888) issuing in parts.

Pseudonyms

Note: It is of the utmost importance for the reader to remember that many of the authors of publications, of whatever field, were adequately hindered by the society in general to actually reveal their identity openly. Therefore the use and employment of a 'pseudonym', a 'pen name'. Sometimes the concealment was not exactly completely intended since several authors simply used their initials, which could easily be solved by the reading public, but also as easily refuted or smilingly denied by the accused or discovered gentleman or gentlewoman.

The name was taken by him from a club, to which he belonged at the time he first took up his pen in behalf of the modern game. 'Cavendish', universally recognized as the leading whist authority ot doday, was born in London, England, November 2, 1831. A the age of nine he was sent to King's college School, whee he assures us, he was more attentive to his duties in the play-ground than in the class-room. He subsequently attended a private school in Brighton, and at the age of eighteen he was entered as a student at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London, where he did good work, being for a year dresser to the distinguished surgeon, Sir William Lawrence Bart. After passing his examinations, at the age of twenty-one, he immediately began his professional career. He remained inactive practice as a surgeon in London until the year 1872, when, finding it impossible to do full justice to both his medical and literary engagements, he decided to give up the former. Source: The Whist Reference Book.

Henry Jones began to write under the name of 'Cavendish' in the year 1862, and attained fame and popularity equalling, if not excelling, that of Hoyle as a writer and authority on Card Games. He was not only a keen and enthusiastic student of the methods of play and laws of games, but also a learned and reliable authority on their history, as may be seen by the Historical Introductions to his treatises on Whist, Ecarte, Piquet and Bezique, and his many essays in periodical publications. He was editor of the card column of 'TheField' from 1864 till his death in 1899. He contributed the articles on cards and on many card games to the 9th edition of the 'Encyclopaedia Britannica' and to 'Chambers's Encyclopaedia'.

A reference to the Westminster Gazette states that London is the only place in the United Kingdom, which possesses two-cent evening newspapers. One of these, the Westminster Gazette, edited with unfailing sagacity by Mr. J.A. Spender, exercises a profound influence on political thought. It is the most intellectual organ of the daily press in this country. The editorial articles in the Westminster Gazette stand in a class by themselves.

Also the following: This courageous (political) stand for conscience by an entire (newspaper) staff is a fine incident in the history of British jounalism. After an interval, Mr. George newnes, - now Sir George Newnes, Bart., M.P., - provided the money for establishing a new Liberal evening paper to be conducted by the old Pall Mall Gazette staff. The new paper was called the Westminster Gazette, and in 1893 began its honorable and successful career.

Putnam's Monthly Magazine

The Putnam's Monthly Magazine of American Literature, Science and Art had its debut January 1853, and was published by G.P. Putnam & Co., New York, New York, United States. This entry is included for the fact that, although the game of Whist is not discussed in detail, the name of the game itself appeared multiple times in many articles as a pastime, as in Volume 15, Issue 27, March 1879, page 361, Heading: Table-Talk, (Author: unknown)

'Amusements': The culture of a people finds characteristic expression in their amusements, and by amusements do not understand the theatres and the circus chiefly: for all the threatres in the land would not hold one in five hundred of the people nightly, and ninety-five per cent. of the people never saw a play. Yet everybody has some sport, whether chess or baseball, dancing or charades, 'coasting' or negro-minstrels. The highest branch of the art of amusement is the quiet, healthful, and profitable entertainment of the family circle. A careful examination fo the stock in trade of the inventors and manufacturers of games, for the last holiday season, would convince any one that a good new game is as hard to invent as a good new motive power. Croquet was the last tolerable novelty in its kind, but does not bear condensation into parlor limits. Billards are the best of indoor games for the sedentary; bagatelle is an imperfect substitute. Whist and chess are perfect for those who need bodily repose and nervous stimulus; being cheap and compact. But these are all imported. The national game of the United Stages is not yet discovered. Our people are the reading people of the world, and their evening amusement must needs be instructive, literary, as well as defiant of routine, reverent toward sensitive feelings, dignified in tone, infinitely varied in expression. As the art of general conversation has been lost to civilized man, in crossing the Atlantic, every ......

Quarterly Review, The

The first issue of this journal appeared in March 1809, in London, England. The publication was an early nineteenth-century political-literary journal founded in England in March 1809 by Mr. John Murray, the illustrious London publisher. The journal was established by a small number of powerful literary and political mandarins, namely Walter (later Sir Walter) Scott, poet and novelist who in social, philosophical, and literary terms was a Romantic conservative and in Scottish political terms, a Unionist; by Mr. John Murray, whose father, also John Murray, had emigrated from Scotland in the previous century; and by Mr. George Canning, the brilliant, scheming leader of a liberal conservative faction in the Tory party. With their supporters and under the editorial tutelage of a fascinating if morally complicated man, Mr. William Gifford - who was a close literary associate of Canning's and was also well known to Scott and Murray - these men developed a journal that rapidly gained a high reputation among its largely middle-class English readership. By its supporters the Quarterly came to be looked up to as the repository of privileged knowledge gleaned from inside the highest Government circles. By its detractors the Quarterly became a dark agent of Government control, or as Hazlitt even more colourfully implied, the literary embodiment of the secret police.

This publication is included in this list since this journal also included several articles about the game of Whist. One contributor was Mr. William Pole with the article 'Modern Whist', No. 259, pages 43-71, in January 1871. The following link is to a .pdf file, which explains the Rules of Whist from an article appearing in 1880 as presented by the State Library of Victoria.

Relevant excerpt: In 1922, to promote card playing, particularly bridge, USPC established a radio station called WSAI. Housed at the company's Norwood facilities, WSAI featured the show "Bridge by Radio" which provided bridge instruction from experts actually playing the game on the air. USPC operated WSAI until 1930. As contract bridge became increasingly popular in the decade that followed, the company's Congress brand emerged as a favorite brand of card for bridge.

Rochester Whist and Game Register, The

In tradition holding to and with many other major newspapers of that time or era, 1880s and 1890s and into the new century, many cities and even Whist Clubs and Whist Leagues, etc. would bond to publish a Register of all the years (sometimes several years) in which Whist events and championships and tournaments were held, listing the winners, the competitors, the dates and even names of the participants. A comparison, on a larger scale, would be The Tribune Almanac and Game Register published first by Mr. Horace Greeley. Published 1894. Publisher: Lyon Brothers, Rochester, New York.

Rowlands, Samuel

The works of Samuel Rowlands have nothing to do with the game of Whist. He is, however, included since his publications provide insight into the society of that era in the United Kingdom, but not from the perspective of the ruling class, but from the other side of society. Samuel Rowlands wrote epigrams, which are short, but witty poems expressing a single thought or observation. It can also be a concise, clever, and often paradoxical statement. And it was this style, which sold to the public and Samuel Rowlands had to pay the rent.

However, some of his publications, however short, were not well received and were ordered by the authorities be burned: "Yt is orderd that the next court-day two bookes lately printed, th' one called The Letting of Humors Blood in the Head Vayne; th' other, A mery Metinge, or 'tis Mery when Kaves mete; shal be publiquely burnt, for that they conteyne matters unfytt to be published; then to be burnd in the Hall Kytchen, with other popish bookes and thinges that were lately taken."

A very early 'book burning' incidence, which only stirred the reading community to obtain access to these publications, poems, prose, and tracts in any manner possible. This incident actually stamped Samuel Rowlands as a popular contemporary. His works, although dealing with the society in general, also employ the ambiguity of the designations for the suits of cards: Knave, for example, can have several meanings, such as 1. an unprincipled, crafty fellow, 2. a male servant, 3. a man of humble birth, 4. a dishonest person, 5. a deceitful and unreliable scoundrel, 6. one of four face cards in a deck bearing a picture of a young prince.

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.

Sewanne Review, The

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.

Full and Easy Instructions for playing all the Games chiefly used at Court and in the Assemblees (French spelling with the mark over the first 'e'), viz. Ombre, Quadrille, Quintille, Picquet, Basset, Faro, and the Royal Game of Chess. II. The true Manner of playing the most usual Games at Cards, viz. Whist, All-Fours, Cribbage, Put, Lue, Brag, etc. With several diverting Tricks upon the Cards. III.

(etc.) The fifth edition. viii + 132 + 94 pp. 12mo. E. Curll and J. Wilford, London, 1734. (With a Frontispiece of a party at Ombre, said to be by Hogarth; of this an inferior copy, signed 'Parr, sculp.,' appears in the subsequent editions. It is from the preface to this book that we learn that Charles Cotton was the author of the original 'Compleat Gamester,' from which the second and third parts of this treatise are taken.)

The Fifth Edition. LC: 93102845. Printed in London, England, for E. Rurll and J. Wilford.

Note: The Eighth Edition. First written for the Use of the Young Princesses, by Richard Seymour, Esq., and now carefully revised, very much enlarged and improved, agreeable to the present method of playing the several Games, by Charles Johnson, Esq. xii+ 324 pp. 12mo. J. Hodges, London, 1754. (On the title-page 'Whist' is removed from the second part, The City Gamester, and now leads the list of games in Part I., The Court Gamester; showing the great advance this game had made in fashionable favour by 1754. A great deal more space is given to whist in this edition, at the expense of chess. Mr. Julian Marshall, in accusing Seymour of gross plagiarism from Hoyle, has overlooked the fact that the additions were made by Charles Johnson and not by Seymour himself. The Game of Lottery is added to those in Part II. Most copies of this edition have the same frontispiece as those of the other editions.)

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."

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

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.

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.
