The pioneer authority on contract bridge writes as editor of Bridge Magazine, a year before his death.
Typed Letter signed: "Ewart Kempson", 1 page, 7x5. Leeds, England, 1965 January 15. On letterhead of Bridge Magazine to "Dear Miss Home", in full: "Your letter of the 31st December has just reached me from the publishers of the British Bridge World. You should have received a copy of Bridge Magazine unless your subscription to the British Bridge World expired with the December issue. A letter was sent to every subscriber explaining that we were incorporating the British Bridge World in Bridge Magazine (which is the oldest magazine on bridge in the world). If your subscription did not expire with the December issue and you have not yet had the January issue of Bridge Magazine, please let me know. Yours sincerely". Ewart Kempson (1895-1966), a captain in Britain's Indian Army, was among the world's foremost auction bridge players, a member of Britain's Bridge World Team, heard in commentaries on the BBC from the 1920s. In the 1930s, he became one of the rare auction bridge stars to make the transition to the newer game of contract bridge. Beginning in 1946, he hosted a regular BBC program on bridge. Kempson wrote several books, including Contract Bridge: How to Play It (1957), and books of bridge problems. Some of the modern bidding conventions originated with Kempson. Creased. Adhesive residue on verso. Fine condition.
