Indoor Games



THIS work was originally published in the year 1850. In spite of the antiquity of the information, there is a steady demand for the old edition, and the publishers, having resolved to reissue the book, decided that it should be thoroughly revised, and many of the articles entirely rewritten. In consequence of the recent development of old games and the invention of new ones, the present edition will fill two volumes of about 500 pages each, while the first edition consisted of only one volume of 600 pages.

The Hand-book of Games.

Vol. I. Table Games. (London: Bell and Sons, 1890.)
