  • Canadian Chess Problems

    This collection of 169 problems and six end games was originally published in 1890 in St. John, New Brunswick. These are mostly 2 and 3 movers.

  • English Chess Problems

    I'm not clear on how English chess problems are different from the Canadian variety but, if you're looking for a challenge this volume has over 600 positions ranging from 2 movers to mate in 5!

  • Globe Problems

    This is a nice little collection of Mate in 2 puzzles from a contest run by the St. John New Brunswick Globe Weekly back in 1888.
