You probably know Maelzel's Chess-Player by another name - The Turk! Our presentation of Maelzel’s Chess-Player has been enhanced in ways undreamt of by Edgar Allan Poe. For starters, the original magazine was strictly limited in space, offering only one or two crude drawings and a few truncated footnotes. Here the reader will find many high-quality graphics tastefully inserted, along with hyperlinks to supporting articles, letters, and exhibits within the document - each designed to elaborate Poe’s original citation. In addition, the Appendix serves as a complete resource center of related topics, with links that delve deeply into the subject at hand.
