William Caxton, Game and Playe of the Chesse (1477). Caxton translated and revised a 14thC French version by Ferron and de Vignay, itself based on Jacques de Cessoles' 13thC Latin original. It is an allegorical commentary on life, rather than a book of rules for chess. See Companion Vol. I, “First of ye chekker sall be mecioune maid”.
