Repetición de amores E arte de axedres x Lucena
Compiled by SirChrislov
--*--

Repeticion de amores E arte de axedres con CL juegos de partido "Discourse on love and art of chess with 150 positions" published in Salamanca, Spain in 1497 by Lucena... and the rest is history.

This ancient book is the Pachamama of all texts on the modern game. It's like Caissa handing down the first holy chess literature to Lucena, as God did the 10 commandments to Moses. In the last quarter of the XV Century, the rules of modern play had already been in use but for the first time they were unified into one book.

150 compositions. 75 in the old rules (Shatranj or "del viejo" in the author's words) and 75 in the modern rules ("de la dama" in the author's words). I will attempt to decode all 75 diagrams in the modern rules and show them here; and those meant to be solved with the old rules that can also work under modern rules as well.

Nota bene I found that diagrams #1,2,3,5,9 (all mate in one) appear to be "delayed mates" for the words of the author are very clear: <Lucena: "The white have the hand and has said he will check and mate black in two shots. not more or less."> Also, in position #2, black's pawn appears to be moving up, so if you find yourself stuck on some, try solving with black at the bottom.
