Lady Cadogan's Illustrated Games of Solitaire (Illustrated Edition) (Dodo Press) (Paperback)
Out of Stock; Usually Arrives in 7-10 Days (This book cannot be returned.)
Lady Adelaide Cadogan, nee Paget (1820-1890) was the British author of Illustrated Games of Patience (also known as Illustrated Games of Solitaire or Patience (1875)). Her book was the first collection of solitaire card games in the English language and has been reprinted several times. Before this, there was no literature about solitaire, not even in such books as Charles Cotton (TM)s The Compleat Gamester (1674), Abb (c) Bellecour (TM)s Academie des Jeux (1674), and Bohn (TM)s Handbook of Games (1850), all of which are used as reference on card games. Lady Cadogan (TM)s book spawned other collections such as Patience by E. D. Cheney, Amusements for Invalids by Annie B. Henshaw (1870), and later Dick (TM)s Games of Patience. Other books about solitaire written towards the end of the 19th century were by H. E. Jones (a. k.a. Cavendish), Angelo Lewis (a. k.a. Professor Hoffman), Basil Dalton, and Ernest Bergholt.
