Book Description

2 Nov 2009
The name "Staunton" has become so closely associated with chess that the words have become virtually synonymous. All modern tournament chess games are required to be played with Staunton chess pieces. The First International Chess Tournament, London 1851, was organized by Staunton. The leading distributor of chess books and equipment in the USA has taken the name "House of Staunton". Howard Staunton was the leading popularizer of the game of chess though his authorship of many chess publications, including this book, "The Chess Player's Handbook" by Howard Staunton, or "Staunton's Chess-Player's Handbook". This Handbook was the leading and most authoritative reference to the game of chess for a half a century. It is still popular today, as evidenced by perhaps 30 re-printings, including this one.

About the Author

His dates are listed as 1810-22 June 1874. Bobby Fischer wrote "Staunton was the most profound opening analyst of all time. He was more theorist than player, but nonetheless he was the strongest player of his day... In addition, he understood all of the positional concepts which modern players hold dear, and thus must be considered the first modern player." Staunton played such openings as the Sicilian Defense and the Queen's Gambit in the modern style, while the other leading players were still bashing each other with King's Gambits.
