FOSTER, R. F. Foster's Whist Manual ... Fourth Edition. London, Frederick Warne & Co., Mudie & Sons, 1899.
8vo. Original red cloth, cover decorated in gilt, all edges gilt; pp. iv, 168 [2, index, 18, advertisements], illustrated in black and white within text; ownership inscription to front free endpaper, a very good copy.
Released as a follow-up to their successful set of 'Self-Playing Whist Cards', (the precise mechanics of which are a mystery, as modern computers can barely facilitate a decent game of solitaire), Mudie and Sons issued this volume as a complementary tool to aid teaching the game to new players.
