The name "Staunton" has become so closely associated with chess that the words have become virtually synonymous. All modern tournament chess games are required to be played with Staunton chess pieces. The First International Chess Tournament, London 1851, was organized by Staunton. The leading distributor of chess books and equipment in the USA has taken the name "House of Staunton". Howard Staunton was the leading popularizer of the game of chess though his authorship of many chess publications, including this book, "The Chess Player's Handbook" by Howard Staunton, or "Staunton's Chess-Player's Handbook".
This Handbook was the leading and most authoritative reference to the game of chess for a half a century. It is still popular today, as evidenced by perhaps 30 re-printings, including this one.
