I spotted this position in a new book Chess Wizardry: The New ABC of Chess Problems by John Rice (Batsford, pounds 1. 9). Composed by M Caillaud and J Rotenberg, it's one of those how- t-here puzzles. Or, to be more accurate, it's two of those puzzles. In the first, you're told that it's the position after Black's 7th move. Black's moves are easy enough to work out, but how did White get rid of the pawn on d7? Whatever took it had to get back home again

The other reviews listed have properly situated this book in its proper context; I can add little to those comments.

I will simply say that this may be the best reference book on problems ever written. It's in the top 2 or 3, for sure. If you compose and/or solve problems, this book is a must on your bookshelf.

However, by its sheer breadth of coverage, it may put off a non-specialist chessplayer. There are more gentle introductions available in print, and I would recommend reading them first.

Highly recommended to anyone interested in Chess problems and puzzles, this latest edition of a classic (1996) book presents themes and terms in quasi-alphabetical order with examples. Written in clear and understandable language and using figurine-algebraic notation, the text reflects the author's vast experience in almost every area of problem composition. I am prevented from awarding a 5th star due an annoying publishing flaw - the over-inking of diagrams in the vicinity of page 300 (Problems for Solving) often prevents one from distinguishing a White piece from a Black one (especially difficult with the Queens). I returned my first copy, but reluctantly kept the second when it became apparent that either; 1)every print run suffered the same problem or 2)I got the exact same book back again (this time, used) and it was just meant to be.
