Raumschach - picture from the book

Below, you see two scans from the book on Raumschach by Dr. Maack from Germany. This book still describes Maack's earlier idea of an 8 by 8 by 8 board.

The first shows the title page of the book; the second a picture from the book. The book is from the extensive chess collection of the Royal Library at the Hague, the Netherlands.

Click on the images for some somewhat larger pictures.
