I look for a very old book of bridge
History of bridge in USA : In April 1891 Henry Barbey came in France, as many times in his life since 1857 (the family of his mother and his spouse were francophone, from France and Switzerland). He learnt the bridge game in Paris and returned in New-York City on November, 16th 1891. In 1892 he wrote in NYC the first book about bridge in USA, a private edition, "A short precis of the game". In 1893 he introduced the bridge game in the Whist-Club of New-York. Is there anybody who have this very rare book or at least a copy of the text? (No copy is known in the public libraries in the world)
