Goh or Wei Chi

    Keywords: Books & Publications

Goh or Wei Chi is an early attempt to introduce Go in the West, self-published by Horace Cheshire in 1911 three years after Arthur Smith's The Game of Go - The National Game of Japan. Like Smith's book, Goh or Wei Chi is mostly of historical interest. Cheshire may be the first Western author to draw explicitly on Chinese sources.

David Carlton's review: [ext] http://www.gobooks.info/cheshire.html

Zarlan: Goh? The author was obviously not a master of languages.

Gresil: That is unjustified. Differing customs of rendering Japanese in Latin alphabet were in effect in 1911.


The book is now available online as a PDF from Cornell University's library at [ext] http://www.archive.org/details/cu31924023392479
