Knights & Bishops: A beautiful thematic chess problem collection (part II)

In 1909 Alain C. White published a collection of 101 chess problems (NY, American Chess Bulletin). Because of their common distinctive feature (the strongest piece on the board is N or B) they look a lot like endgame studies. At least I think that I have bumped into many of these patterns on real games. So enjoy them. Here' re the following 25 from part I (always white to play and mostly M3, and few M2). In the end I've posted the 4 introduction pages of the book and a download link, via dropbox, of the pgn file that contains the positions below, for anyone who's interested in...
