Welcome to "And The Baboon Played Chess"

Yes, I know, you are asking about the name of these pages! Did a baboon really play chess?


NEW!! Now available as an Ebook

One of my books is And the Baboon Played Chess With the Emperor. The book is a modern recreation of a Victorian scrapbook, made up of cuttings from books and magazines published in the early to mid nineteenth century.

One of the cuttings in the book is about the chess playing baboon. Read the Cutting!
