Dr. Volodymyr Mezhenskyj's Lubny Chess appears in 1972, the year of Fischer-Spassky world match. Chariot is Amazon (RNB), and why compounding escapes the move description is puzzling. ''The pawn moves in the next ways...'' is followed by now-typical much-copied enhancement of Pawn on 10x10. Credit its having been done 35 years ago, although not at all first. He may be describing Chariot as R+B+Moa, a slightly weakened Amazon.
