The forty illustrative games are nearly all from actual play. They are chie?y intended to illustrate Whist principles, the way of forming inferences at Whist, and so forth. Several are fine ex amples of Whist strategy. A few have been selected as examples of bad play. They differ from any such series hitherto published in being fully annotated,* and in having the full hand of each player displayed (with score, trump card, as if set round the Whist-table itself. The games (contributed to Knowledge original ly) by Mr Lewis are particularly valuable.
