The Game of Go, by Arthur Smith. Tuttle; 1956.

This book was originally published in 1908. As he says in his Preface, "In the preparation of this work, I have borrowed freely from Herr Korschelt's work," and many of my comments about that book apply to this book as well. Like Korschelt's book, we should all be glad that Smith wrote this book, and many people in the pre-Ishi days learned go from this, but there's really no reason to read it now unless you're a collector or a historian.
