This week's problem is a beautiful twomover, based on the theme of dual avoidance. The problem is taken from the book Chess Problems: Introduction to an Art, by John Rice, Michael Liption and Robin Matthews. This book, a seminal event in chess problem publishing, appeared in 1963, exactly 50 years ago, and the latest issue of The Problemist contains a most interesting article by John Rice, recollecting the writing and publishing of the book.

Any comments or questions on this problem should be addressed to Steve Giddins (our Libarian and Archivist) using the 'Contact' item in the menu on the left.
