Footnotes

  • "The handbook of etiquette for ladies", published circa 1847 by Leavitt & Allen, is stated on the title-page to be by an "American Lady". If this statement is accurate, and if "The chess-player's handbook" is by the same author, it may be the first book on chess to be authored by a woman.
