Chess Player's Chronicle...
Early sports and theater - 1847...
Item # 214868 SPIRIT OF THE TIMES, newspaper from New York City, dated in 1847. There is much reporting on sports of the day, as this newspaper is subtitled: "A Chronicle of the Turf, Agriculture, Field Sports, Literature and the Stage." An interesting feature is the back page which contains a column titled "Chess Player's Chronicle" which illustrates a particular chess situation, plus other specifics as well (see photos). You get the complete 12 page issue, scattered browning throughout; generally nice condition. The image shown represents the look and condition of the issue you will receive, but actual dates will vary within 1847.
