Chess Novelties by Henry Edward Bird

This is a book on creative, innovative and unusual openings. Prof. Hoffmann writes in the introduction "With the courage of his opinion, Mr. Bird has decided to embody these tabooed openings and games arising from them in an independent volume. Here in black and white he has set down the heterodoxies of which he is accused, and he submits them to the judgment not alone of critics who have pinned their faith to certain special lines of play, but to that of the whole Chess world."

1st edition, 1895; 344 pages.
