The Book

Written by Jerry Slocum and Dic Sonneveld.   Published by The Slocum Puzzle Foundation.  
ISBN 1 890980 15 3  First published in 2006
144 full colour glossy pages  Hard cover

The story of the puzzle that started the craze of 1880 and how America's greatest puzzle designer, Sam Loyd, fooled everyone for 115 years!
And a really interesting historical read with many nice observations about family and social life of the day.

From the Foreword by Will Shortz: 
"
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Sam Loyd, the great American puzzle genius, freely used others' puzzles without credit, passing them off as his own." ....
"Both claims, though, were repeated so often and so widely that they were often accepted, and this 'information' can still be found in standard references today." .... 
"It's a wonderful story, which Jerry Slocum and Dic Sonneveld reveal in this surprising, entertaining, and painstakingly researched book, is completely untrue." ....
"They refute Loyd's claim to the puzzle's invention. Then identify the real inventor, track the puzzle's long, twisted route to market, and explain why the inventor's name has essentially remained a secret for 125 years" ....

Size: 210mm x 260mm
