Originally published as ''Oxford Encyclopedia of Chess Games: Volume 1: 1485-1866''. Volume 2 was never published, so the title has been shortened to ''Oxford Encyclopedia of Chess Games''. This encyclopedia set out to publish all the important games of chess which have been played since the modern laws came into force in the late 1400s.

This book, Sam Loyd's Cyclopedia of 5,000 Puzzles Tricks and Conundrums with Answers, was compiled by his son and published in 1914 after his death. Although many books have been written about some of Loyd's puzzles, this remains the most complete volume of all of his puzzles. This is considered to be the most fabulous and exciting collection of puzzles ever assembled in one volume. The puzzles come with wonderful illustrations.

This book is written in both German and English. Some knowledge of both Classic notation and Algebraic (mainly the latter) is needed to follow all the notes.
