I am interested in older and unusual books about card and board games. Particular interests include Whist, Piquet, early editions of Hoyle, the Gamesters and Académie des Jeux.
The Trictrac Home Page contains my work on the game of trictrac, a French game played on a backgammon board.
More recently, I have been researching and publishing about the writings of Edmond Hoyle.
