Gottingen manuscript

One of the earliest known works entirely devoted to modern chess. The author is not named, but he is addressed as Dominatio vestra, Magfifice domine, Serenissime Princeps.  It may have been written by Luis Lucena around 1500.  It is a Latin text of 33 pages, now at the University of Gottingen.  It describes 12 openings and 30 chess problems.   It derives its name from a note in the inner cover which records its presentation to the University of Gottingen.
