700 CHESS PROBLEMS
 SELECTED FROM THE COMPOSITIONS OF

        Mrs. W. J. BAIRD
                 [1902]




          An Electronic Edition

                            PREFACE

The Chess Problems contained in this volume are the product of
the labour and recreation of some fourteen years. I say “labour,”
because I am not such a Chess enthusiast as to believe that a col-
lection such as this can be produced without persistent applica-
tion partaking of the nature of work; and “recreation,” because
the work has been a pleasure—how great a pleasure only a com-
poser can fully realize. Although a large number of the problems
have been republished in numerous papers at home and abroad,
only the name of the publication in which each originally ap-
peared is given. Exclusive of the prize list, in about a dozen cases
with a view to an improvement, they have been more or less reset
since their first appearance. The six added to this collection in let-
terpress at the end of the Solutions are the last composed.
   To the best of my belief there is not a single instance of a dual
continuation, and not being an admirer of dual mates, they are
very few and far between.
   A list of prize problems will be found, but it must not be taken
for granted that it contains the essence of the volume.
   Solutions are given in full for the benefit of those who are not far
advanced in the Problem Art. As will be seen, red represents the
White, and blue the Black pieces.

    PREFACE TO THE ELECTRONIC EDITION



The original edition was published by Henry Sotheran & Co, Lon-
don, 1902. As the original preface indicates, it was printed in red
and blue.
   In this edition, solutions have been converted from descriptive
notation to algebraic, using the letter ‘S’ to indicate knights. The
distinction between plain, double and discovered mates present
in the original has not been retained, except as far as lines that
were considered separate because of this distinction have also
been kept separate in this edition. One example of this is the first
and third line in the solution to problem .
   Variations omitted from the original solutions, indicated by
‘&c.’, have been added, in brackets.
   An extra section, containing publishing information (with occa-
sional corrections of problem source), and notes about the prob-
lems taken from Mrs. Baird’s notebooks has been added after the
solutions.

   The dates given in the original proved to be the date of the
award given. The present edition tries to make this clearer by
printing them together with the award, rather than with the
source, as in the original.
   In the original several unnumbered problems were given in let-
terpress: these problems have been set in diagrams, and, if associ-
ated with another numbered problem, given the same number
followed by A, B, C, etc. in brackets. The six diagrams appearing

8                   baird: 700 chess problems

last in the two-mover section were originally printed at the end of
the solutions section.

   All problems have been computer tested, using Matthieu
Leschemelle’s Problemiste . ., except for the last two problems
which were checked with Popeye. Only four unsound problems
were found: 307, 627, 643 and 697.
   In those very few cases where computer testing showed the
presence of moves or variations not completely covered in the
original, these have been added to the solution in brackets, and set
in italics.
   Occasional errors in mating moves have been silently correct-
ed.

I am very grateful to C. P. Ravilious, who generously made his
notes on the original publishing dates as well as the history of
some of the problems, taken from Mrs. Baird’s own notebooks,
available for this edition.

I also wish to thank the Library of the British Chess Problem Soci-
ety for preserving Mrs. Baird’s notebooks and for making them
available for research and publication.

The fascination of composing has always been far greater to me
than that of solving. However, I have now and then entered a so-
lution tourney, with the result that I have been successful in win-
ning a few prizes. Over the board play has its charm, but only twice

of solvers, and were therefore considered the most difficult.

have I engaged in serious competition. In 1897, I entered for the
Ladies’ Championship for Sussex, which I won without the loss of
a game; and in 1900, in the Ladies’ section of Leisure Hour, I tied
for first prize.

              FAREWELL



My task is done; and like the bard of old,
My toils are over; and my tale is told;
Yet still I pause beneath the enchanter’s spell–
Still hesitate to say the word “Farewell”:
But howso we may linger o’er the past
The parting word must be pronounced at last.
So, critics all, I thank your kind attention
To these few pages of my poor invention ;
Whether your verdict be for good or ill–
In praise or blame–yea–I would thank you still.
But should I one approving glance descry
My goal is numbered–or, in fact, if I
One smile–one joy–one pleasing look have won,
Then farewell all, my destined task is done.
