Reprint of Libro de los Juegos de Ajedrez, Dados y Tablas de Alfonso X el Sabio (1283)

Jon's main chess page
My collection includes only very few modern reprints, but this one is special -- a very high quality reproduction, hand-crafted from lambskin with precision printing, one of 390 numbered copies.

Alfonso X El Sabio commissioned this very early work on chess in 1283, one year before his death.
