THE LIBERAL PATRON OF CHESS,

PREFACE

In offering this collection of problems to the Chess community, I feel


that a few prefatory words are required by way of explanation. Several
previous composers have come before the public in the same manner,
among whom I may enumerate Mr. Kling, Mr. Brown of Leeds, and J.
B. of Bridport. Their example has given me confidence, and I venture
to hope that the present collection will be found to bear some features
especially distinctive of English problems, such as may justify my
publishing it in a separate form.
It is certain that the great body of Chess amateurs have always felt
an especial interest in the composition and solution of problems.
For ten persons who take up a magazine or newspaper to examine a
game, probably a hundred may be found who only look to the prob-
lems. How often do we see a man of powerful brain devoting a spare
half hour to the careful scrutiny of a diagram in the Illustrated London
News. This study is rewarded by that legitimate gratification which the
successful exertion of the intellect always brings with it. But the same
man would not, and could not, have devoted the necessary time and
energy to a difficult contest over the board.
The innumerable solutions of those problems constantly forward-
ed to the Era, the Illustrated London News, the Field, and many other
newspapers, all agree with one consent in the same story, viz., the in-
creasing popularity of problem making and solving.
Problems are indeed the poetry of Chess. The same depth of imagi-
nation, the same quick perception of the beautiful, the same fecundity
of invention, which we demand from the poet, are to be found, under
a different form, in the humble labours of the problematist. Surely,
without pressing the analogy too far, we may say that the thirty-two

5

pieces form the alphabet of the composer, while the Chess board is
the paper, and the positions finally resulting may be fairly likened to
so many stanzas. Nor are painting and sculpture alien themes. But
why should I proceed
“To paint new colours in the bow of Heaven
And throw fresh perfume on the violet.”

Turning for a brief moment to the history of problems, it cannot


but strike the student with some surprise to discover how few names,
comparatively speaking, are inscribed on the honourable roll of in-
ventors. From the illustrious Damiano downwards, the following
brief register includes, I believe, most of the celebrities to our own
day:—Lolli, Ponziani, Stamma, D’Orville, Küper, Mendheim, Kiese-
ritzky, and Silbersmidt. In our own time, we have indeed a brilliant
constellation of genius, in which Anderssen, Kling, Bayer, Horwitz,
and Grosdemange, among our continental brethren—Angas, Bolton,
Bone, K. A. Browne, J. B. of Bridport, Campbell, M‘Arthur, Grimshaw,
T. Smith, C. W. of Sunbury, and Turton, among ourselves, with Theod-
ore Brown, S. Lloyd, and E. B. Cook in America—shine pre-eminent.
Coming now to compare the ancient with the modern school of
problems, I feel much diffidence in attempting so delicatc a task. It
has been justly observed by a clever Spanish writer that there is as
much difference between the styles of two skilful problem composers
as between the paintings of Raphael and Titian, the one excelling in
expression, the other in colour. Similarly one problematist is known
for his originality and brilliancy of conception, while another excels
in giving that artistic finish which really constitutes the perfect prob-
lem. In truth, the beauty of a problem does not consist so much in the
intricacy of the theme as in the manner in which the idea is treated
or woven in by the composer. The finest end games have often a very
simple solution, but it is so hidden among numerous other modes of
play which mislead the solver that it is very difficult to discover.
The main feature in the works of the earlier composers is the great
number of moves required for their solution. There are in general few
variations, but a series of forced checks and bold sacrifices conducts
the student to the final mate. Though difficult to solve, they were com-
preface 7

paratively easy to invent. In a word, although much admired on ac-


count of their intricacy and ingenuity, they lack the depth and com-
plexity which characterise the best productions of the present day.
Perhaps the most convenient way of classifying problems is to di-
vide them into three main branches—viz., 1. Ordinary problems, i. e.,
those in which mate is to be given in a certain number of moves; 2.
Conditional problems, i. e., those in which mate is to be given by a
particular piece or Pawn, or upon a particular square, or in which the
mate is hampered by some similar stipulations; 3. Suicidal Problems,
i. e., those in which White compels Black to checkmate him in a cer-
tain number of moves. The last two species are manifestly unpopular
with English players of the present day. They are more artificial, more
unnatural, less practical, and less instructive than the former. Upon
this head I cannot better express my deliberate judgment than in the
language of Herr Lowenthal in his preface to the Era Problem Tourna-
ment. “Suicidal and conditional problems have gone out of fashion,
and the inference is, that the fanciful modes of play which they illus-
trate have fallen into desuetude. Few games are now played in which
the giver of odds undertakes to compel his adversary to mate him or
to give mate on a marked square, and the kind of problems referred
to have consequently lost their use, and with it their interest. We have
fewer problems in which it is almost insuperably difficult to hide the
design, fewer still of those interminable studies in which the moves
approach in point of number to the tales of the thousand and one
nights. In short, mere trifles are disregarded, and ponderous puzzles
are thrown aside. The lovers of problems are turning to the elegant,
the original, and the practically useful, and in that way can render
their pursuit profitable to the student and interesting to the accom-
plished Chess-player.’’

Notes to Electronic Edition

This edition is based on the 1866 edition, published by Longmans,


Green & Co., London. Solutions have been converted to algebraic
form, but otherwise follow the original.
All problems have been computer-tested, using Matthieu Le-
schemelle’s Problemiste. Found errors have been indicated below the
diagram as follows: [†] indicates a problem without a solution in the
stipulated number of moves, [*] indicates a problem with multiple so-
lutions, and [§] a problem with short solution(s). Details have been
added, in brackets, to the solutions, though minor errors have been
silently corrected.
