BILLIARDS WITHOUT A MASTER.
The above-named work, the first American publication of the kind, is illustrated by
50 fine copper-plate diagrams, each containing from 1 to 24 shots, from which sufficient
knowledge may be acquired to enable the player to accomplish any possible stroke on
the billiard table, all of which are fully explained on the pages opposite to the respect-
ive plates. The work contains an invaluable and original invention in the shape of a
chart, or scale of strengths necessary to be used in making each shot, of an arrangement
so simple that it can be comprehended by all, and will be found of the highest importance
to the noTice and amateur, as every shot there delineated has been graduated by it, and
the quanity of strength necessary to be used is given in the description annexed to each
plate. It contains, also, a full and complete set of rules for the government of the game
of billiards, and the various games of pool ; hints to players -, advice to amateurs ; with
a variety of explanations interesting to all connected with billiards or billiard playing.
To keepers of billiard rooms, the "Rules" are worth more than the price of the work,
and the hints and advice are invaluable. Accompanying the work is a treatise on the
origin, rise, and progress of the game. It is also embellished by a fine steel-plate frontis-
piece, showing a billiard table and players in position. The above work is the most
complete one of the kind ever produced in any part of the world, and the only one in
which the theoretical science and philosophy of the game has ever been explained.
