This collection contains digital replicas of all 30 issues (over 1400 pages) of The Bridge Journal ever published, reproduced exactly as they originally appeared. The Bridge Journal was a magazine published from 1963 to 1966, produced by unpaid young tournament enthusiasts who were hoping to improve the game in several dimensions: technique, partnership methods, logistics, laws, forthrightness in and quality of reporting and analysis, and entertainment. The publication had a considerable impact. Some of the methods that were first promulgated in its pages have become standard practice, others have retained lasting popularity among a minority, and discussions planted the seeds of further developments; tournament events underwent major changes based on Journal suggestions; and some of the magazine's approaches can be seen dotting the landscape of bridge literature--in particular, several of the major innovations have become permanent fixtures in The Bridge World magazine.
