INFORMATION ABOUT THIS E TEXT EDITION

The following is an e text of "Chess Strategy," second edition, (1915) by Edward Lasker, translated by J. Du Mont.

This e text contains the 167 chess and checkers board game diagrams appearing in the original book, all in the form of ASCII line drawings. The following is a key to the diagrams:

For chess pieces,

R = Rook Kt = Knight B = Bishop Q = Queen K = King P = Pawn

Black pieces have a symbol to the left of them, while white pieces have a ^ symbol to the left of them. For example, B is the Black bishop, while ^B is the white bishop. Kt is the black knight, while ^Kt is the white knight. This will let the reader instantly tell by sight which pieces in the ASCII chess diagrams are black and which are white. Those who find these diagrams hard to read should feel free to set up them up on a game board using the actual pieces.
