This book was written by Col. C. de V. Duff and published by The Richards Press of London. A publication date is not printed in the book, but the Kenneth Ritchie Wimbledon Library Catalogue shows the year of publication as 1928.

This hard cover volume does not have a dustjacket. Internally it is in excellent condition, with no marks, or loose pages and only very light foxing on the title page. The spine is slightly worn at the top, but otherwise the cover is perfect.

Can The Game Be Taught?
