777 Chess Miniatures in Three


In introducing this unique collection of three-movers which Mr.
Wallis has gathered together in such profusion, I should like to
draw attention to the wonders of chess construction, its endless
variety, and its charming ramifi cations. Here we have a huge set
of problems in three moves, in none of which there are more than
seven men, kings included. With such limitations it might be well
imagined that many positions would bear so close a resemblance
as to be almost duplicates of one another. A glance through the
pages that follow will show that, on the contrary, despite the stringent conditions, variety, beauty and diffi culty are to be found. It is
to be wondered how it is possible to produce such a number of little
three-movers, each of which stands by itself—a complete work
of art.
