- 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.
