The dates given are an uncertain factor since many bridge books have been re-edited, renamed, revised, republished, reprinted, and reissued. We have not added a link to any particular website, where the publication may be ordered. There are several Internet addresses where the interested reader can order a particular publication.

The attempt has also been made to provide credit to those bridge players who are not the author, but have co-authored, contributed to, edited or illustrated the bridge-related publication before the publishing date. The attempt has also been made to provide credit to those female authors, who have published bridge books before their marriage, and afterwards changing their surnames. It must be noted that some of the bridge books are no longer in print, or are being reprinted, and/or are not available at this time. It is also possible that some bridge-related publications, which are being edited for re-publication, are listed as not available. We cannot be certain that a bridge book is out of print.

Legend of Employed Codes

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 of the United States of America.

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.

Note: With the introduction of bridge-related products, which are also classified as interactive, the manufacturer has assigned a product identification code or number. These manufacturing codes will be included as they are also relevant, if at all possible, owing to copyright laws.

List of Sources

Credit is owed to those bridge players, those researchers, and those who have contributed data and information regarding bridge-related publications. Below is a list of sources, which must be mentioned, whose authors have diligently, painstakingly, and with great time and effort devoted their interest in this matter. Without these bridge historians the information provided on these pages would be lost to future generations. Many sources are older publications, but those individuals who have made major contributions to this list are also credited for their contributions.

If at all possible the translated bridge-related publications into other languanges have been included. This aspect proves to be an immeasureably difficult task since such translations are often not publicized or circulated beyond the borders of the individual countries.

Continuous broadcasting from 1922 until the year 1956.

WCSH-Radio: Mr. Joseph Henry Rines built Portland’s first-class Congress Square Hotel. In 1925 his son started WCSH radio, Maine’s first commercial radio station, on the top floor of the hotel, thus the call letters WCSH. In 1953 Mr. Joseph Henry Rines’ grandson built a studio in the hotel’s dining room and launched the TV station. In 1977 the station moved across the street to its present location at One Congress Square, Portland, Maine.

The Washington Post, October 25, 1925. Bridge By Radio To Aid Amateurs In Learning Game

The United States Playing Card Company, based in Cincinnatti, Ohio, United States, conducted the following promotion. This information is property of the United States Playing Company and this information is only preserved and archived on this site in .pdf file format for future reference. Source is the United States Playing Card Company.

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.

Reich, Peggy

Peggy Reich is a Bridge Olympiad Gold Medalist, World and National Champion, andpProfessional Bridge Teacher. This book is an introduction to some of the most popular conventions. Learning new conventions will not only raise the accuracy level of your bidding, but will also help on defense when opponents make bids that were previously unfamiliar to you. The best part of increasing your bridge knowledge is that your circle of available partners will expand. By resolving some difficult hands and reducing misunderstandings, conventions make it easier to play with new partners and improve results with both new and established partners

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.
